McDowell Technical Community College has launched a program to help take care of tuition costs for the 2021-22 school year. It's all part of the Learn and Grow Scholarship Program.

President Brian Merritt said high school graduates coming to McDowell Tech could receive up to $2,800 per year. He said the program can truly help people reach their career goals.

"This program is not just for degree-seeking students. If students want to be trained in phlebotomy, if they want to be trained as paramedic, law enforcement, a lot of the workforce training programs, they're going to be eligible for federal funds, as well," Merritt said.

The deadline to apply is July 15.
