Running Start for Careers

About the Running Start for Careers Initiative: The Running Start for Careers initiative raises scholarship funds for CCS students earning a college trade degree and high school diploma at the same time. This means that our local high school students have more career options and can enter their field as industry professionals at least two years earlier.

This initiative can address the growing shortage in professional and technical qualified employees. CCS offers 30 degrees or certificate options including Welding, Diesel, Heavy Equipment, HVAC, Hydraulics, Machining, Medical Office, Cad Design and more.

This Grant will help: By providing scholarship funds for students go to college and get a vocational degree to start their careers.

The Community Colleges of Spokane Foundation is honored to partner with Northwest Business Development Association in support of the Running Start for Careers Initiative. This initiative raises scholarship funds for CCS students earning a college trade degree and high school diploma at the same time. The Foundation’s mission is to make potential possible; our goal with this initiative is to provide future Running Start students the financial support needed to cover their student costs, such as equipment and additional credit costs to complete their program (which can sometimes add up to thousands of dollars), for the length of their degree.” -Sharon Robertson
