MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - An organization that supports the Vermont Community Foundation has awarded almost $370,000 to promote college and career education for Vermonters.

The focus of the grant from the J. Warren & Lois McClure Foundation will be on low-income students, first-generation college students, adult learners, and veterans.

The award announced Wednesday is for the just-starting academic year.

Funding priority was given to programs that promote required workforce development and access to college and career education.

One of the largest grants will support the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation to help educators work with students to begin career exploration and skill development before they finish high school.
