The Career and Technical Education (CTE) Innovation Grant is a Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) competitive grant program was established to fund the development and implementation of a CTE curriculum framework and pathway that is innovative and includes best practices used by world-class CTE programs. The vision for CTE in Maryland is grounded in ensuring that each student has access to opportunities to engage in career pathways that will lead to earning industry-recognized and/or postsecondary credentials that allow for entrance or advancement in a career field; and will provide internship or apprenticeship opportunities that require the application of academic and technical knowledge and skills in a work setting. The Career and Technical Education (CTE) Innovation Grant supports Maryland’s Local Education Agencies (LEAs) and community colleges in the adoption, development, and implementation of a career and technology education pathway, in arts and/or advanced academics, which leads to high-wage, high-skill, and in-demand careers in support of Maryland’s workforce and economic development.
