CPI Adams Street Dual-Enrollment Scholarships

Some of the CPI Adams Street Campus courses offer college credit. Taking the courses for college credit is not mandatory. Students have the option to take these courses as high school credit only, personally paying the college tuition (dual-enrollment), or applying for a CPI Adams Street Dual-Enrollment Scholarship. The Grand Island Public Schools Foundation offers scholarships in a competitive process to help cover the tuition expense for college credit.

The CPI Adams Street Scholarship Fund was donated by local business and industry leaders to invest in the future workforce of Central Nebraska.

In 2014, the Foundation began offering dual-credit scholarships to students attending the Career Pathways Institute from the Career Pathways Scholarship Endowment. These scholarships are designed to pay college tuition for students who are taking courses that qualify. More than $35,000 was offered to 63 Career Pathway students for dual-credit scholarships in 2018-19.

Questions regarding CPI Courses and college credit should be directed to CPI at  308-385-5601.
