Greenville Tech Receives Funding to Support STEM Workforce Development

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, S.C. -

Greenville Technical College has a new source of funding to support STEM workforce development in South Carolina.

The school recently received money from the Clemson University Center for Workforce Development and Duke Energy. The money will be used for three big projects.

The school will spend $15,000 on Six Sigma Yellow Belt training. Greenville Tech will work with Tri-County Technical College and Spartanburg Community College to develop a common curriculum across the colleges.

The funds will also pay for manufacturing instructors to participate in professional development to help them learn how to attract and retain more women in manufacturing programs.

Another $71,000 is being put toward STEM transfer scholarships. STEM students who are first-generation college students, under-represented, or have financial challenges will have priority.
