Workforce Grants

Any student interested in a grant-funded course must first contact a representative from their local Workforce Solutions Alamo location or SA: Ready to Work counselor. While discussing their interest in the grant-funded course, the student will need to consider their intended start date. Please note, fully online courses are open enrollment and have a flexible start and end date. These dates must be agreed upon by both the student and representative.

After a student has been approved to enroll in a grant-funded course by their local representative, UTSA staff will need to be provided with a voucher to proceed with the enrollment process. Vouchers are generated at the discretion of Workforce Solutions Alamo and are required for enrollment in any grant-funded course. Upon receipt of a voucher, UTSA staff will manually enroll the student in the course. Course access will be granted on the student's agreed upon start date.

To speak with a Workforce Solutions Alamo representative about potential grant-funded courses and training opportunities, please call 210-224-4357 or visit Workforce Alamo Solutions.
