Applications for scholarships for job-related training through Wayne Community College Continuing Education will be accepted through Jan. 17.

The college will award up to $750 for spring semester courses that lead to state-regulated or industry-recognized credentials. The scholarships are provided by the State Employees' Credit Union Foundation.

The scholarships may be used for registration fees, books, certification fees and course supplies. Funds may also be used for transportation, childcare and living expenses after primary fees/costs are paid.

The target groups for the program are unemployment insurance claimants, unemployed and underemployed adults, military veterans and their spouses, and members of the N.C. National Guard.

Scholarships are need-based but do not require completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

Students already enrolled in a qualified program as well as those preparing to enter one may apply for the aid.

For more details and an application, go to www.waynecc.edu/continuing-ed/scholarships or contact program coordinator Maxine Cooper at 919-739-6938 or mcooper@waynecc.edu.
