Duke Energy Community College Apprenticeship Grants Program

Program overview

Grants from the Duke Energy/Piedmont Natural Gas Community College Grant Program are awarded to North Carolina community and technical colleges in Duke Energy's or Piedmont Natural Gas’ service areas. The grants are open to community colleges throughout the state for registered apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship programs designed for new and incumbent workers, preferably within the manufacturing industry, giving students hands-on experience and giving businesses access to a pipeline of skilled workers.

A grants committee representing the NC Department of Commerce, NC Community College System and Duke Energy will review and award the grants.

The North Carolina Community Foundation and Foundation for the Carolinas administer the program on behalf of Duke Energy. The application process varies based on which community foundation supports this program in your area.
