23 colleges and groups get $183.8M to expand apprenticeships

“The U.S. Department of Labor is granting $183.8 million to colleges and their private-sector partners to support training for more than 85,000 apprentices in the health care, advanced manufacturing and information technology fields. Twenty-three higher education institutions and groups — including the Alabama Community College System, Purdue University and the Colorado Department of Higher Education — received funding. It will be partially matched by the private partners. The grant program stems from a 2017 executive order, in which President Donald Trump called on the federal government to expand apprenticeships.”
