Since spring of 2022, EEC has partnered with Cleveland State University, Lorain County Community College, and Baldwin Wallace University on the launch of a pilot program to pair technology micro-credential opportunities with interest in entrepreneurship.
Eligible students receive modest scholarships to support the testing and course fees. Each campus is also providing coaching support to increase the likelihood of student success.
CSU, LCCC, and BWU have seen significant interest in the opportunity, and several students have already successfully completed a micro-credential certification.
The Burton D. Morgan Foundation provided grant and organizational support to pilot the program and EEC is deeply engaged in promoting the opportunity and connecting it to our Tech Internship and Tech Side Hustle programs.
A Steering Committee is meeting regularly to shape program details as the pilot rolls out. Look for more updates as the pilot year continues.
