Maryville University is excited to announce that our MaryvilleWORKS division has received a $324,000 MoExcels grant to provide workforce development to minority-owned and women-owned small businesses.
“MaryvilleWORKS is committed to providing upskilling opportunities to M/WBEs in the St. Louis area, and this funding will advance our efforts,” says Scott Chadwick, Chief of Corporate Partnership Acquisitions at Maryville University. “We’ve already started the recruiting process and look forward to working with some of the best and brightest entrepreneurial minds in our metro area as they take their small businesses to the next level.”
The State of Missouri awarded $20 million to nearly two dozen Missouri colleges and universities. “These funds are yet another opportunity to help keep our economy moving forward,” said Mike Parson, Governor of Missouri. “These grants will allow Missouri colleges and universities to expand our workforce, particularly in entrepreneurship and other careers where we are seeing growth.”
