IPC Partners with the Institute for American Apprenticeship to Announce Funding Opportunities to Reimburse Participation in IPC’s Registered Apprenticeship Program
IPC, the leading association for electronics manufacturing, and the Institute of American Apprenticeship (IAA) will offer two grant opportunities to companies offering apprenticeships.
One grant offers funding for a first-time apprentice program, given to new employers adopting apprenticeships. The grant provides $375 per apprentice.
The second grant offers full reimbursement for the cost of related technical instruction, equal to $500 per apprentice. The funding for this grant is available through June 2024, and seats are limited.
“We are excited to join IAA to offer funding opportunities for apprenticeship programs,” said David Hernandez, IPC vice president of education. “Apprenticeships help to address the workforce shortage by providing unique opportunities for learning. In addition, the two funding sources can be combined for added value allowing a company to be reimbursed in full for the related technical instruction and receive an additional $375 per new apprentice in the first cohort.
