Fall 2018 AMP applications are now being accepted
The Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP) program is a collaboration between West Michigan manufacturers, students, and Grand Rapids Community College to address the talent shortage the region is experiencing. Companies provide a FULL-RIDE SCHOLARSHIP for students to obtain an Associate Degree while working for the sponsoring company.
This partnership is unique in that the curriculum and schedule is determined by the participating companies and Grand Rapids Community College. All of the AMP “classes” are run in a cohort fashion with classes scheduled and reserved specifically for the AMP students. The school schedule is determined by a planning team of participating companies before the start of each cohort.
Placement interviews begin in January 2018!
