Short-Term Certificate Grant Program

The Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) has awarded Buckeye Career Center funds under the Short-Term Certificate Grant Program to provide grants to students enrolled in certificate programs that help to meet the in-demand needs of our Regional businesses and industries. 

This grant is designed to support students with demonstrated financial need in obtaining a certificate less than 30 credit hours, or 900 seat hours, and that can be completed in less than one year while providing a one-time grant of up to $2000 to assist with tuition and fees in one of these short-term certificates. This grant is to be used only for tuition and fees (does not include the cost of books and supplies) and is a limited fund that will be awarded until funds are exhausted. Submission of a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will assist in determining need. You may apply for UP TO 3 separate awards; however, you must complete ONE Program before you may qualify for another.

To be considered, interested students must: 
*  Be an Ohio resident. 
*  Submit the Short-Term Certificate Grant Application. 
*  Plan to enroll in one of the certificates listed below at Buckeye Career Center in one of the programs listed below. 
*  Certify that you have a financial need for this grant. Financial need may be because of unemployment or underemployment (working in low paying or low skill jobs) or simply lacking resources to fully meet all your current expenses. Submission and evaluation of the FAFSA can help us in determining this need.
