Grants

More than 18,000 residents of Durham and Orange counties and beyond came through Durham Tech's doors last year to retool for a new career, receive updated training for current employment, start an advanced degree, or pursue lifelong learning. Durham Tech prepares the productive, dynamic, and creative citizens that make our community strong.

To advance our work, we aggressively seek government and private funding opportunities to support three key priorities:

  1. We enrich lives through greater access and success;

  2. We enrich lives through teaching, learning, and service; and

  3. We enrich lives through training for 21st century jobs.

We are proud to list the following grants awarded to Durham Tech to help accomplish these goals, and to acknowledge the numerous organizations and government grant programs that make our work possible.

We Enrich Lives Through Greater Access and Success.
