Educational Opportunities for Unemployed Workers

Going to school doesn't mean you have to lose your unemployment.

Under a new initiative put forth by the federal government to help the unemployed, colleges like Southwest are able to make available Pell grants (worth up to $5,350) to unemployed people who are looking for a new job without that person losing unemployment benefits.

The government has a website which explains the plan: www.opportunity.gov

To begin your road to a new career, first learn more about the Financial Aid process at Southwest.
