Delgado Community College has been awarded $125,000 from the Capital One Foundation to explore opportunities for bridging non-credit to for-credit programming.
The $125,000 award will be provided for up to three years, totaling $375,000. Together with $50,000 the College received last year, this marks a $425,000 investment in Delgado from the Capital One Foundation.
“We are very excited to have been selected, and this award builds on a relationship with Capital One Foundation that we have been cultivating for some time,” said Dr. Larissa Littleton-Steib, Delgado Vice Chancellor for Workforce Development and Technical Education.
Delgado Chancellor Joan Davis said: “We are proud of our growing partnership with Capital One. This award from the Capital One Foundation demonstrates their confidence in the innovation in workforce development and education provided by Delgado Community College.”
Delgado is a part of the Capital One Foundation’s Community College Workforce Development (CCWD) cohort, which is currently in the second phase of funding to focus on the implementation of a multi-year grant program.
