Resource Training & Solutions has partnered with seven other educational service cooperatives and the Minnesota Department of Education to support rural CTE (Career & Technical Education) initiatives within our nine-county region.
Grants up to $3000 are available to individuals working for a school, along with business and higher education partners, on improving CTE initiatives listed in the goal activities on a rolling application cycle. Preference is given to licensed Minnesota teachers seeking CTE licensure or those working directly with employers on teacher externships within their community. Mini-grant funds can be used to develop job shadowing programs, acquire CTE licensure, internships, apprenticeships, and much more.
In order to be eligible for funding, schools must be full members of Resource Training and Solutions and their local Perkins Consortium.
