The Temple College Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) program has scholarships available that can help adult learners earn certification in high-demand fields.

Students can apply now to take advantage of the scholarships any time during the 2021-2022 academic year.

“Securing a scholarship up to a year before a program starts gives students more time to plan for their return to school and meet any pre-requisites for the program they are interested in,” said AEL Career Pathways Program Manager Javier Ruiz.

Training programs that can be covered by these scholarships include Clinical Medical Assistant, Certified Nurse Aide, EKG Technician and Phlebotomy Technician. The programs are offered through Temple College’s Business and Continuing Education Division.

Scholarships for these programs cover the entire cost of tuition as well as certification testing fees. Scholarship recipients also receive additional training in adult basic education contextualized to fit their core field, as well as soft skills and workforce preparation training.
