Cares Act Application

Are you looking for a job or a way to sharpen your skills to embark on a new career? If so, St. Johns River State College’s Rapid Credentialing Grant Program is ready to help you get to work.

The Rapid Credentialing (RC) Grant Program is designed to help local residents who are unemployed, underemployed, or furloughed as an impact of COVID-19, get back to work by assisting individuals to quickly obtain educational credentials to enter and/or re-enter the workforce.

Participants in the RC Grant Program:

  • Have access to excellent Career and Technical Education (CTE) training and tailored student support and placement assistance.
  • May be eligible for financial support to defray tuition, fees, textbooks and/or certification exam costs.

Rapid Credentialing Training is available for in-demand industries, such as healthcare, business, and information technology. Training can be fast — several of the programs are self-paced.

To be part of the Rapid Credentialing Grant Program, participants must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen/resident alien
  • Be 18 years of age or older
  • Not be dual enrolled in high school
  • Meet SJR State and/or program admission requirements
  • Be enrolled in a Rapid Credentialing eligible program at SJR State and actively taking courses towards completion of program
  • Agree to complete the coursework in the expected time for the program
  • Agree to provide SJR State with information regarding job placement

To be eligible for scholarship or other financial support through the Rapid Credentialing Grant Program, participants must:

  • Meet all of the requirements for participation listed above
  • AND

  • Be unemployed, underemployed, furloughed or at risk of losing employment as a result of automation or disruption in the local economy due to COVID-19
  • Meet financial need requirements determined by the College’s local process
  • Complete the College’s Scholarship Application to initiate the College’s local process.

Scholarship applications will be reviewed by the Rapid Credentialing Scholarship Review Committee for eligibility and may require additional criteria. Students who qualify will have funds disbursed to their student account to cover eligible program costs (tuition, fees, textbooks, educational materials).

Rapid Credentialing funds are limited, not guaranteed, and will be awarded to eligible students on a first-come, first-served basis.
