Grants to New Jersey nonprofit organizations, businesses, agencies, and IHEs to design apprentice training programs. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full proposal. This grant program is designed to support training programs that provide participants with the opportunity to earn a degree while gaining work experience.
The NJPLACE 2.0 program will provide funding to organizations that create a degree apprenticeship structure that integrates on-the-job learning with credit-bearing classroom education and the broad knowledge at the heart of the requirements for an associate’s, bachelor’s, or graduate degree. Student Apprentices will be able to simultaneously fulfill the requirements of a USDOL Registered Apprenticeship program and the requirements for an associate’s, bachelor’s, or graduate degree while still earning a living, or, following the successful completion of a USDOL Registered Apprenticeship program, through credits awarded pursuant to a prior learning assessment.
The main goal of the NJPLACE 2.0 program is to promote equality of opportunity, upward mobility, and economic fairness. Technological advances have increased demand for more technically advanced, high-skilled positions that require occupational training at the secondary, post-secondary, and adult education levels.
NJPLACE 2.0 is intended to provide grant funding for two models of Degree Apprenticeship programs: (1) Dual Education Degree Apprenticeship Model, and (2) Degree Apprenticeship through Prior Learning Assessment. For more information on these models, see https://www.nj.gov/labor/programs/grants/19023_njplace2.0.pdf#page=6.
The NJPLACE program is intended to establish and expand Degree Apprenticeship programs in the following sectors:
