FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — While President Biden recently proposed two years of free community college, Ivy Tech Community College in Fort Wayne is taking a different approach.
Thirteen students signed on to work with different manufacturing companies in the area while attending school at Ivy Tech.
They will have three days of on-the-job training and learning and two days in the classroom each week.
They’ll be paid enough money to pay their tuition, and the goal is for them to have no student debt when they finish.
Nadia Handy, a Warsaw High School senior who signed to work with Zimmer Biomet, put it simply when asked about the cost of higher education.
“It’s pretty crazy I’ll tell you that,” she said.
