The THECB is offering two grant opportunities for institutions providing internships and apprenticeships. The Work-Based Learning Opportunity grant program will provide funding through two separate grants: Work-based Learning Opportunity Grants – Internships and Work-based Learning Opportunity Grants – Apprenticeships. Each grant will have a separate application process, detailed below.
The COVID-19 pandemic widened gaps and opportunities for higher education students to gain professional experience and hands-on training through work-based learning opportunities like internships and apprenticeships. Together, these grants are designed to strengthen the education to workforce pipeline, drive student opportunity, and aid in the state’s economic recovery due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
