Adult students are encouraged to explore and apply for funding support for their education. As scholarship opportunities have been increasing, the Mid-East Adult Education staff will work to keep this list current so that students can have a convenient place to find available funding to offset program tuition and fees.
CDL Loan/Grant program: Truck Driver Training students are invited to apply for funding through the Commercial Truck Driver Student Aid Program offered at Mid-East Career and Technology Centers.
