Letter to Scholarship Recipients

…………………….

The St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce is partnering with First Coast Technical College, Goodwill Industries of North Florida and the Florida Prepaid College Foundation to provide St. Johns County students with “the first of its kind in the state” enrollment opportunities at FCTC. The GET THERE program is a workforce initiative to short-term but high-value career and technical education programs.

St. Johns County’s plan is the first in the state to roll out and assist low-income students to enroll in rapid credentialing programs at First Coast Technical College. Students in grades K-12 will be exposed to career opportunities through year-round workshops held at First Coast Technical College. Upon high-school graduation, participating low-income students will be eligible to apply for the GET THERE FASTER Application, a one-year Florida Prepaid College Foundation Plan. The approximate $3,600 plan’s value will cover most, if not all, of the tuition costs for workforce certification programs.

The GET THERE program is partially funded by a Florida Prepaid scholarship program. Additional funding is needed from employers and community members to continue the availability of this program in our community. Every donation to help a student attend First Coast Technical College will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Florida Prepaid College Foundation.
