ABEIG allows students to earn a workforce certification in one of Lone Star College's Career and Technical Education Certification programs while building core skills in math, reading and language. Students benefit from intensive, on-site advising, which is designed to keep students focused and on-track for completion.
The grant assists in paying for the cost of their support class to assist the students with the material learned in class, as well as a College and Career Readiness class to prepare students for the classes and jobs. The student will receive a $200 tuition reimbursement after the successful completion of the workfoce class.
I have achieved something that no one in my family has ever done. I have completed training that will allow me to not only get a job but to start a career and be able to take care of myself, my wife and children.
