Ad-VANCE Talent Solutions, the Gulf Coast’s leading staffing agency, has been a community partner with Manatee Technical College for over 20 years. With the importance of education prevalent in most required job skills, Ad-VANCE has established a successful scholarship program to local high school graduates for certifications that are offered at Manatee Technical College. Ad-VANCE has now awarded $7,000 since 2020 to local graduates, who are currently enrolled at Manatee Technical College, or have successfully completed their program of choice.
Students from all Manatee School District High Schools have the opportunity to apply and be considered for scholarships from Ad-VANCE Talent Solutions. The requirements for these scholarships include, a minimum GPA, reference letters, and a video interview. Students are required to apply with Manatee Technical College before they receive the scholarship and enroll in a program. Ad-VANCE also offers the scholarship winners employment during and after their enrollment.
