To spur technical education and support of business and industry, a $6.7 million was allocated to the Duke Energy Community College Grant Program from the Duke Energy Foundation. As in the past, the grants are only available to community colleges located in the Duke Energy service areas.
Community colleges in the service areas can apply for funds through the Foundation for the Carolinas (Duke Energy Carolinas customers) or the NC Community Foundation (Duke Energy Progress customers). Applications are reviewed by representatives from Duke Energy, the NC Community College System and the NC Department of Commerce.
