Biosciences are at the core of curing diseases, combating hunger and creating new fuels. Through a competitive process, the Department of Labor has awarded Forsyth Tech a $15 million grant to promote job training in biosciences and biotechnology.
Over three years, Forsyth Tech and 12 other community colleges across the country will establish the Community College Consortium for Biosciences Credentials. This means their students can earn specialized credentials that are nationally recognized in the biosciences field.
