The Career and Technical Education (CTE) Career Cluster and Program Affiliate grant provides federal Perkins funds to two- and four-year colleges and universities, community- based organizations, and non-profits to partner with the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) to support Maryland’s vision for career and technical education. That vision is for each student to have access and opportunity to engage in career programs of study that:
align to high-skill, high-wage, or in-demand careers;
includes the opportunity to earn post-secondary credit;
provides generalized work-based learning experiences across multiple grade levels that require the application of academic and technical knowledge and skills in a work setting; and
provides support for students to earn an industry-recognized credential and participate in the high school level of a registered apprenticeship program prior to graduation.
MSDE will hold three customer service support sessions for interested applicants. During these sessions, MSDE personnel will review the program requirements and application.
