State and Federal Workforce Development Grants

Training is a key factor in how your workforce grows and develops. It also empowers and encourages your employees to take pride and ownership in the work they perform for your company. Companies who invest in their workforce experience a decrease in personnel turnover and are better able to compete in the marketplace. Training directly impacts the quality of the product, improves efficiency of the production process, reduces downtime, and extends the life of your machinery.

As an IACET accredited provider, Stiles University has the ability to accept workforce grant funding to help companies offset the cost of training for their employees. There are a variety of available state and federal workforce development grants. We recommend contacting the appropriate state agency or U.S. Department of Labor for available resources. Our team is able to work directly with your company or the funding agency to provide course suggestions and supporting documentation. Upon course completion, Stiles University will provide each student with transcripts and certificates.

Funding may cover:

  • industrial expansions, workforce hiring and training
  • full student tuition or a matching percentage
  • additional expenses such as travel and meals
