Career Development Grants: are you an American permanent citizen looking to advance or change careers? The Career Development Grants program might be the perfect opportunity for you. With funding ranging from $2,000 to $20,000, this program aims to support women who hold a bachelor’s degree and are preparing to enter the workforce in fields such as education, health and medical sciences, STEM, or social sciences.
Priority is given to women of color and those pursuing their first advanced degree or credentials in nontraditional fields. To be eligible, applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents who received their last degree before June 30, 2016.
Funds provided by the Career Development Grants can be used for various purposes, including tuition, fees, books, supplies, local transportation, and dependent care.

It’s important to note that the grants do not cover doctorate-level work. Additionally, the coursework must be taken at an accredited two- or four-year college or university in the United States, or at a technical school that is fully licensed or accredited by the U.S. Department of Education.
