CLEVELAND, Ohio - Cuyahoga Community College has received a $1.18 million grant from the National Science Foundation to prepare Cleveland Metropolitan School District students for technological careers.

Tri-C’s Youth Technology Center will administer the grant for SAY-YES!, the STEM Academy for Youth featuring Youth Essential Skills.
“We are pleased to partner with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District for this innovative project, which is designed to enable high school students to successfully pursue post-secondary STEM studies when they arrive in college, rather than enrolling in remedial coursework,” Tri-C President Alex Johnson said in a news release.
