Four Tennessee community colleges are each receiving a $250,000 state grant to help high school students earn two-year degrees in the high-demand field of mechatronics.
Tennessee Board of Regents Chancellor Flora W. Tydings announced that Chattanooga State, Cleveland State, Motlow State and Roane State community colleges will receive the funding. The grants were funded by a $1 million appropriation in the Fiscal Year 2018-19 State Budget proposed by Gov. Bill Haslam and approved by the Tennessee General Assembly.
Students who earned a degree, certificate or other credential from Tennessee’s public community and technical colleges in the 2016-17 academic year are projected to earn a total of $940.7 million annually during their working careers – about $224.2 million more each year than they would without a postsecondary credential, according to a new economic impact study by the Center for Economic Research in Tennessee.
