Staff from the Northeast Community College renewable fuels program will host an informational meeting in O'Neill to gauge public interest in expanding Northeast's renewable fuels program to the O'Neill education center.
The meeting on Thursday, June 9, at 7 p.m. in the O'Neill Education Center at 409 E. Adams Street will also include discussion on a tuition assistance program through the Department of Labor's educational syNErgy grant.
Students interested in green careers, such as renewable fuels (ethanol), wind energy, and other green energy fields, may be eligible for grants up to $1,800 through the Nebraska Department of Labor's syNErgy program. The Department of Labor will provide assistance towards tuition, fees, and books for current and incoming students and unemployed and underemployed persons interested in green careers meeting the grant criteria.
Participants must complete their certificate, diploma, or degree by December 2012.
"We are exploring the addition of evening classes for a certificate program in renewable fuels here in O'Neill," said Merri Schneider, director of the Northeast education center in O'Neill. "An evening program would allow students who work during the day to attend our classes."
