On a continuous basis, we offer funding to help with the cost of classroom training to WOMEN and MINORITIES working in, or who have a strong interest in working in, the highway construction industry.
Eligible women and minorities will have the opportunity to take industry related classes for $25 per class! VTrans will pay the balance with funding from the Federal Highway Administration.

For the purpose of diversifying the workforce in highway construction, the term "minority" refers to women of any ethnicity and men of a racial or ethnic minority group. The program is funded by the Federal Highway Administration and is a direct result of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, for the purpose of advancing non-discrimination and creating equal opportunity.
