The Career and Technical Education Rural Grants are designed to support and expand career and technical education in rural areas.

“Every student should have the opportunity to participate in high-quality career and technical education courses no matter where they live in the state,” said Glenda Ritz, Indiana’s Superintendent of Public Instruction.
