- Pell Grants: Apprentices who qualify for Federal Pell Grants can receive funding to cover all or most of the cost of tuition and fees, books and supplies for the students’ enrollment in the technical instruction portion of an apprenticeship if it is part of an eligible academic program.
- Work Study: Institutions can use Federal Work Study (FWS) funds to pay a portion of the training wages for eligible students who are apprentices while they are enrolled in eligible certificate or degree programs.
- Job Location and Development Program: Institutions can leverage their FWS funds, individually or as part of a group of institutions, to create a Job Location and Development (JLD) program to help identify and support employers in creating apprenticeships for enrolled students.
