BSU, Greater Bemidji receive state funding
Bemidji State University and Greater Bemidji are two of the more than 40 companies and organizations that will share more than $2.1 million in state funding as part of the Minnesota Pipeline Program. The funding will provide employment-based dual training for 482 employees.
The Dual Training Grants legislation, signed into law in 2015 by Gov. Mark Dayton, was created to give employee-students the opportunity to earn while they learn, while at the same time helping businesses meet workforce needs, a press release said.
