GBC will be presenting information on the Maintenance Training Cooperative (MTC) scholarship. The MTC scholarship is a $5,000 scholarship with the potential to receive a paid internship with local mining and contracting companies. Other topics include general GBC admission, additional Financial Aid, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA), and student housing.
After the informational session, the technical labs will be open for tours. Participants will have an opportunity to speak directly with GBC instructors and representatives from local mining companies.
Students, parents, and community members interested in the CTE programs can complete an Associate Degree or Certificate of Achievement in less than a year. The accelerated programs offer technical courses in the morning (7 AM-12 PM), afternoon (12 PM-5 PM), and evening (5 PM -10 PM).
