Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Opportunities at Howard Community College

08/03/2021 to 08/03/2021

Virtual Event, Virtual Event, MD 21044

We know that life under COVID-19 has been extremely challenging, especially if you’ve lost your job, had reduced work hours, or haven’t been able to find a new job. Did you know the Governor of the State of Maryland has established a fund to help Maryland residents who have been impacted by COVID-19 enroll in workforce training programs? Funding provides tuition and fee scholarships for programs and students who are eligible. Join us on August 3 to learn about how GEER may be able to help you get back into the workforce. The session is open to the public, free of charge, and will last approximately an hour or until all questions are answered. To register, please visit howardcc.edu/InfoSessions. A Zoom meeting link will be emailed to registrants the morning of the information session. If you have any questions or need assistance, please send an email to InfoSessions@howardcc.edu.
