DOE sponsors college program

-A A +A

UNM-Los Alamos has joined forces with six Northern New Mexico colleges to offer Accelerate New Mexico. This program, sponsored by the Department of Energy, provides curriculum and coaching designed to quickly prepare people of various ages and all educational backgrounds for employment in technical fields.
Students will have the opportunity to apply for tuition assistance, course credit, and a stipend. A coach will guide students, help place students in internships and assist them with future employment. Nontraditional students or working people interested in either pursuing a certificate program or returning to college for career training are a good fit for the Accelerate program.
Participating colleges include: UNM-Los Alamos, Northern New Mexico College, Luna Community College (Las Vegas), New Mexico Highlands University (Las Vegas), Santa Fe Community College and UNM-Taos.
Program participants can also participate in Summer Math Experience, which uses a basic math curriculum in engaging ways to stimulate students’ interest and participation.
