The newly established CCRES Scholarship Program awards grants to qualifying students to enable them to attend post-secondary educational institutions including career and technical schools. While the awards can apply to traditional colleges and universities, they also can fund attendance at trade schools such as licensed practical nursing, cosmetology, construction and technology programs. Awards can also pay for certification exams, special fees or tools and equipment associated with a student’s course work or academic program.
