Florence-Darlington Tech Lands $3 million Grant to Help Underserved Students

Florence-Darlington Technical College recently received $3 million in grant funding from the U.S. Department of Education to launch the Pathways to a Brighter Future Program.  The new grant-funded program will build on previous programs to improve the college’s capacity to expand services to address the needs of minority and underserved student populations.  The Pathways to a Brighter Future Program will work with other school programs — such as Upward Bound and the Dual Enrollment Program — to serve high school students to identify and recruit Pathways students.  It will also focus on helping students’ complete credentials in STEM and healthcare programs. Intensive tutoring, counseling, advising, mentoring, targeted workshops and other student and academic services will be provided as well.
