The HCCCEC (Holyoke Community College Cannabis Education Center) based in Massachusetts is providing scholarships to students who register for its marijuana training program, which will take place on 21st and 20th March. You’ll need to pay $595 to join the program, however, eligible folks can have the entire cost financed by Elevate Northeast (the college’s partner and cannabis firm).
Cara Crabb-Burnhab, education director and co-founder of Elevate Northeast, said that the scholarships are prioritized to students from regions disproportionally affected by past marijuana prohibition laws within the state. Cannabusiness donations are funding the scholarships.
According to a statement from Crabb-Burnham, the aim of the Elevate Northeast Scholarship Fund is to assist future marijuana entrepreneurs and employees experience real-world education and training that will enhance their likelihood of getting viable seats in the marijuana landscape. The statement adds that the company hopes to bring students into the marijuana sector via the scholarship program who adore marijuana and want to make the cannabis sector is fair, equitable, and diverse.
Students who finish the core training curriculum will then qualify to sign up for classes in any of the college’s marijuana landscape career tracks: extraction technician, culinary assistant, and patient service associate.
The CEC (Cannabis Education Center) is a merger between Elevate Northeast and College that’s related to HCC’s Kittredge Center for Business and Workforce Development.
