Shenandoah County launches scholarship for residents impacted by pandemic
Shenandoah County is partnering with Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) to offer a scholarship program to county residents who have lost their jobs or have been negatively impacted by COVID-19, either by job loss or loss of income.
The scholarship is available to all Shenandoah County residents and will cover 75% of tuition, up to $2,000 per resident, for Workforce Solutions Career Preparation and/or enhancement classes taken through LFCC before June 30, 2021.
“Our hope is that this program can help people displaced from employment as a result of the recent pandemic find new opportunities in positions that are currently in demand with other local companies,” said Director of Tourism & Economic Development for Shenandoah County Jenna French in a news release. “Many manufacturers throughout the county and region are hiring. The programs offered through LFCC Workforce Solutions and available through this scholarship are a great resource to receive training to open the door to new opportunities.”
Applications are available now through LFCC and on the Shenandoah County Economic Development website. Visit www.lfccworkforce.com/Shenandoah to learn more.
A virtual information session is scheduled for Oct. 15 at 5:30 p.m.
