The Career Center is dedicating a portion of our funding to support student career-related learning and skill-building in areas not currently offered at the college. While Carleton provides students with free access to LinkedIn Learning resources (formerly, some students may benefit from additional training (often virtual) in subjects related to their specific career interests.

To support participation in fee-based, short programs, we invite students to apply for funding.


  • Funding is to be used to cover expenses related to a fee-based training course
  • Funding is designed to be used during breaks in the academic year unless student demonstrates that the additional work will not/not have a negative impact on existing academic commitments
  • Funding will be awarded on a rolling basis until funding is depleted
  • Awards will be limited to $500 per student, per academic year
  • Only rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors are eligible for these funds during the summer. (Note: seniors may request funds IF they will be done with their learning activity BEFORE graduation.)
  • Following the course, funding recipients will be asked to write an essay about their experience in the course, including the skills they learned. The essay will be shared with stewardship so that the donor(s) may learn about the impact of the funding. Students will submit the essay on a Moodle site designed for this purpose.

Please note: Neither test preparation nor academic coursework that is taught at Carleton is eligible for Career Center skills-grant funding.
