From Career Training to Gainful Employment
Central Scholarship (CS) Career Training Scholarship recipients have shown an exceptional trajectory of employment. According to a study conducted by The Jacob France Institute at the University of Baltimore, CS recipients have demonstrated higher employment earnings and job retention percentage than their counterparts who participated in state-funded workforce training programs.
“With an average scholarship award of $1,400, Central Scholarship students obtained valuable certifications in a short amount of time and found gainful employment soon after,” the study results state. “The scholarship awards were significant for people who could not otherwise afford to pay for a certificate program without incurring loan debt.”
- CS Career Training Scholarship recipients demonstrated higher earnings and employment rates than recipients trained by the MD Department of Human Resources wage subsidy and skill-training participants.
- The majority of CS scholarship recipients were Baltimore City residents.
- Scholarship recipients demonstrated a high fourth-quarter employment retention according to their chosen workforce training program.
CS’s Career Training Scholarship program offers students an opportunity to land more than just a job; it helps them pursue a career. Career Training Scholarship recipients have entered fields that fit their goals of upward mobility and stability, including healthcare, transportation, construction, and IT.
