STEP is funded through unemployment insurance paid to the state. To qualify, applicants must be either on unemployment, have exhausted unemployment benefits or be unemployed or working part in a position covered by UI in the last three years. Priority will be given to people on Prince of Wales Island, Metlakatla, and in other rural areas outside Ketchikan.
The grant will pay for tuition, fees, tools, and books for the eight people enrolled through the grant program. There is also a modest travel and lodging stipend for people outside the Gateway Borough. This 15 week, 12 credit course will run full-time from February 28 to June 17.
More information is available through the University. Call Marty West at 228-4503 for details and a grant application.
