Pinnacle Career Institute Agency Benefits and Matching Grants – For students sponsored by Federal, State and local governmental and non-profit training and rehabilitation agencies (i.e. WIA, CAP, and Displaced Workers under Workforce Development, Vocational Rehabilitation including Veteran's Rehabilitation and The Services For The Blind), Pinnacle Career institute makes available a limited number of matching grants. Agency matching grants are made to facilitate career studies for individuals who meet PCI's admissions requirements and are sponsored by governmental and non-profit organizations dedicated to sponsoring education and training for economically, physically, or socially disadvantaged clients.
Current students may not directly apply for PCI's agency matching grants. Rather, the decision to award an agency matching grant is made by the Campus Director as a result of Agency Representatives and staff recommendations and/or by the request of the sponsoring agency to make such a grant. The number of grants varies depending upon outside agency sponsorship and the availability of budgeted funds.
The matching grant given by Pinnacle Career institute is determined by the following:
- Tuition charges less the ITA (Individual Training Authorization) certification and any other federal grants and/or scholarships not to exceed the direct cost of tuition, fees and institutional charges.
