State Grant For Aacc

March 17, 1991

Anne Arundel Community College has received a $200,000 state grant to spearhead an education-industry coalition aimed at attracting more people to high-tech careers and alleviating critical technician shortages in Maryland.

The grant proposal, part of $1 million in Maryland Association for Higher Education awards, was the largest single award given 10 community colleges for this fiscal year.

The money will finance the college's efforts to help Marylanders identify high-tech careers with faster-than-average employment growth; attain the required skills to enter those careers; obtain on-the-job training while in high school; and fill critical techniques shortages identified by members of the coalition.
