The City of Hayward is introducing a new tuition assistance program to help Hayward residents retool and update job skills while expanding the City’s hometown employee talent base.
The Learn to Earn Tuition Assistance Program will provide microgrants ranging from $500 to $2000 to cover educational and training expenses at California State University East Bay, Chabot College and potentially other technical schools offering certification and professional training.
Learn to Earn will prioritize students enrolling in advanced manufacturing and biotechnology and collaborate with local educational institutions to facilitate seamless grant issuance and continuity of student support through graduation, certification or completion of a training program.
The initiative is a critical new component of the City’s COVID-19 economic recovery efforts and intended to respond to pandemic dislocation of workers and post-pandemic recruitment challenges faced by local businesses and industry.
For more information about Learn to Earn—including ways to apply for the grants through CSU East Bay, Chabot College and Eden Area Regional Occupational Program Center, or to have your school considered to become a partner institution or agency—visit the program page here on the City of Hayward website.
