MARLBORO OFFERS MATCHING GRANT FOR NP CERTIFICATE
Additional need-based aid and grants available for courses starting Oct. 8
Brattleboro, VT - (September 20, 2010) -- Marlboro College is offering a matching grant for its Certificate in Nonprofit Management program, which begins October 8 with concurrent versions offered in Burlington and Norwich, Vermont.
The Partnership for Capacity Building grant matches an employer's contribution toward tuition up to a total of $650, which is half the cost for the ten week program. The individual student will be responsible for the remaining tuition balance.
Program director Kate Jellema says the grant was created out of recognition that meaningful staff development training can be financially challenging for smaller nonprofits.
"Advanced training in leadership and management is critical to the competitive strength and ongoing vitality of the nonprofit sector," says Jellema. "We hope the grant enables organizations to build a more skilled, effective and confident workforce."
Additional financial aid and grants are available based on need, says Jellema. Marlboro is also offering a Potash Hill Alumni grant for graduates of the college working in the nonprofit sector. Contact Kate Jellema at 802-451-7510 or email@example.com for more details or an application.
The Certificate in Nonprofit Management combines the best of face-to-face learning with an online learning portal, offering nonprofit leaders and staff an intensive four-month series that help them gain and refine the essential skills needed to strengthen their organizations and achieve their missions. A complete course list and faculty roster can be found on the web at nonprofit.marlboro.edu.
Fall 2010 marks the first time Marlboro College is the sole Vermont institution offering the Nonprofit Management program. For the previous two years, the program was offered in conjunction with first Woodbury and then Champlain College.
