West Virginia chancellor James Skidmore seeks grants and scholarships for community college students

Charleston Daily Mail
With only 2 percent of Promise scholarship money going to the state's community and technical colleges, their chancellor is advocating a new scholarship program for students interested in their more job-focused programs.

Of the nearly $40 million a year spent by the state on Promise scholarships, only $800,000 goes to community and technical colleges, which provide more focus on two-year degree programs.

James Skidmore, chancellor of the state Community and Technical College System, told lawmakers last week the state should look into a Promise scholarship-type program to help students seeking two-year degrees at state institutions.

The recommendation came Tuesday at a meeting of the Legislative Oversight Commission on Workforce Investment for Economic Development.

It followed a presentation by state Commerce Secretary Kelley Goes on the best in-state career opportunities through 2016.

Goes said some of the highest-paying, fastest-growing jobs will require two-year rather than bachelor's degrees.
