Governor Deval Patrick and the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) today announced a $5 million capital grant for the Life Sciences Consortium of the North Shore (LSCNS), which consists of Endicott College, Gordon College, North Shore InnoVentures, North Shore Community College, and Salem State University. The grant will fund major lab/facility and equipment upgrade projects at the member institutions and organizations.
Since the Keys to Degrees program started at Endicott in 1992, it has been a source of pride for us. As this model continues to grow and gain notice with higher education groups, we’ve begun working with other universities to set up similar programs and expand opportunities for single parents. We just announced some very exciting news on this front – Keys to Degrees has received a grant for $700,000 to replicate its program at Dillard University in New Orleans!
