The 3-year Guided Pathways to Success in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (GPSTEM) grant is a $20 million dollar project involving all 15 Massachusetts community colleges together with their workforce development and industry partners, advancing a comprehensive approach to address the training and education needs of workers and employers in Massachusetts, with a focus on articulated pathways to careers in high growth STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) sectors.
Greenfield Community College, like each of the others, receives $525K to carry out the grant, plus $202K for the College and Career Navigator. One special focus of GCC is the enhancement and development of programs in Manufacturing and Engineering Technology that together create a pathway toward academic advancement and sustainable employment. Students, who may start out as un- or underemployed, participate in non-credit foundational and advanced manufacturing trainings; transition to credit courses and certificate programs; and may potentially continue on an academic pathway to earn an A.S. and even transfer to a four-year institution.
This project was 100% funded by a $20,000,0000 grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration, Grant # TC-26450-14-60-A-25.
