Educational Scholarships Program

GCCSA strongly believes Education and Literacy to be vital attributes for anyone seeking to better themselves and transition into thriving and productive lives.  We are proud to be able to provide access to education services that increase basic academic skills and vocational training for adults. As a Community Action Agency, we strongly believe in improving adult education, particularly when it directly impacts and influences children’s educational goals. Our program prepares students with career training and vocational skills, and helps to instill a commitment to community outreach and strong citizen leadership skills. All of these aspects will improve the chances of economic independence and self-sufficiency.

 

In partnership with some of our community partners, such as Houston Community College (HCC) and the Industrial Welding Academy (IWA), the Educational Scholarship Program offers full scholarships to qualifying candidates interested in pursuing continuing education or vocational training certifications. Scholarships include: the cost of tuition, books, uniforms and other school fees.
