Duke Energy/Piedmont Natural Gas Community College Grant Program

The North Carolina Community Foundation was pleased to partner with Duke Energy/Piedmont Natural Gas by administering the Community College Apprenticeship Grant Program in the Duke Energy Progress region.  Since 2017, $1,756,700 has been awarded to community colleges throughout the state for registered apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship programs designed for new and incumbent workers, giving students hands-on experience and giving businesses access to a pipeline of skilled workers. All of the available funding for the Duke Energy Progress region has been awarded, so this grant program is no longer accepting applications in this area.
