Career Development Grants

Goals

Build a list of career development grants in New York and in the US. The information will be used to apply for a funding grant for a company.

Early Findings

CAREER DEVELOPMENT GRANTS IN NEW YORK

DE BLASIO ADMINISTRATION GRANTS
  • The De Blasio administration aims to provide microgrants to help disadvantaged New York residents move into tech and other lucrative job sectors.
  • The administration will initially provide a maximum of $300,000 funding to eligible organizations that focus on workforce development.
  • The grant will also help fund research initiatives that aim to uncover innovative ways to develop and employ the underrepresented residents of the city for in-demand industries.
  • The grant will be offered on top of the current investments that New York has already provided to the technology space. This helped in pulling in employers such as Amazon and Google to establish offices in the city.
THE ROBERT STERLING CLARK FOUNDATION - CORO NEW YORK LEADERSHIP CENTER
  • The Robert Sterling Clark Foundation - Coro Leadership Center aims to provide funding for professional development purposes.
  • The available funding amount has a total of $82,500, $75,000 for general operating expenses and $7,500 for professional development.
  • The grant is exclusively for leadership development programs that can improve the leadership skills of young adults, recent college graduates, mid-career professionals, immigrants, and community leaders.

Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
Our initial research provided some of the career development grants that are available in the state of New York. Some career development grants that are available were not specific to the specified criteria. Given that there are available resources on this topic, we propose continuing the research to provide 6-8 additional career development grants in the city of New York. We will focus our research on those programs for mid-career individuals. We will also consider re-training programs, programs for people moving across industries, or programs that may cover educational or training expenses for under-represented minorities. We will provide a 3-4 sentence overview of each grant covering how it supports career development, location, target recipients, and other notable information.
As an alternative path to the proposal above, we recommend identifying 2-3 additional career development grants that are available anywhere in the US. We will provide a 3-4 sentence overview of each grant covering how it supports career development, location, target recipients, and other notable information.
