Beginning this fall, Anne Arundel Community College will offer a 64-credit-hour associate of applied science degree in juvenile justice and two certificate programs. A 10-week accelerated studies program will lead to a 24-credit-hour certificate for juvenile services resident advisers, and an eight-week program will lead to an 18-credit-hour certificate for juvenile services institutional support staff members. Registration for fall classes is underway. Call 410-777-7390 or visit www.aacc.edu.

Deadlines are approaching for scholarships offered by the Maryland Higher Education Commission. Applications are due next Thursday for the State Nursing Scholarship and Living Expense Grant, open to high school seniors, degree-seeking undergraduates and graduate students. Due July 1 are applications for the Firefighter, Ambulance and Rescue Squad Member Tuition Reimbursement Program; the Developmental Disabilities, Mental Health, Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Workforce Tuition Assistance Program; and the Physical and Occupational Therapists and Assistants Program.

Applicants must be Maryland residents and agree to work in the field in which they are receiving assistance for one year for each year of the award. Additional criteria vary. For details, check www.mhec.state.md.us or call 410-260-4565 or 800-974-1024.
