Bristol Community College is launching a new pilot program aimed at giving so-called “incumbent workers” a leg up in their education.

The program is a collaboration with Higher Education Partners, and will fund scholarships worth up to 50% of the costs for up to two classes for the Early Childhood or Human Services programs.

HEP President Gerry Kavanaugh says those “incumbent workers” already serving in their fields realize the importance of such a program.
