A new grant opportunity is available through the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education in the U.S. Department of Education— the High School Career and Technical Education (CTE) Teacher Pathway Initiative.
Consistent shortages of high school CTE teachers make it difficult to respond to student and community interest in creating or expanding CTE programs focused on in-demand industry sectors and occupations. Just announced in the June 13, 2017, Federal Register, this grant opportunity will award up to $3.6 million for strategies and activities that seek to address these shortages. Questions may be directed to CTEteachergrant@ed.gov. Applications are due July 28, 2017.
A pre-application webinar is scheduled for Thursday, June 22, 2017, at 2:00 pm EST. Register at http://cte.ed.gov/cal/high-school-cte-pre-application-webinar.
Additional information on this grant opportunity has been posted to the Perkins Collaborative Resource Network (PCRN) website at http://cte.ed.gov.
