Oneida County Workforce Development is offering scholarships up to $2000 for qualified Oneida County residents to pursue degrees and certificates in the Nanotechnology industry and related fields. The program, announced last week along with the County's Vision 20/20 initiative, is administered through Working Solutions.

Under this initiative, trainees must embark on training in identified programs which will support the nanotechnology, semiconductor, electrical engineering/services and advanced manufacturing sectors. Training must result in industry-recognized credentials (certificate or degree) to be completed in two years or less.

Workforce Investment Act Adult, Dislocated Worker and Youth (age 19-21) scholarships can be accessed by meeting with an Advisor at Working Solutions to develop an employment plan and submitting a scholarship application. To learn more contact Kevin Siembab at the Utica Working Solutions Office at 793-2674. 

MVCC Fall classes start Aug. 27. People interested in attending on a scholarship should contact Working Solutions as soon as possible, and should also apply for admission at MVCC immediately by calling 315.792.5354.
