Federal employees and their spouses will now be able to get a grant worth 10 percent off their tuition for certain law programs at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, the federal government announced Tuesday.
The grant will apply to the Master of Science in Law and the Master of Laws programs at the University of Maryland. Federal employees and their spouses who are currently enrolled in those programs at the University of Maryland will also be eligible.
"This alliance provides federal government employees and their spouses with access to opportunities to earn a master of law degree through the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law," U.S. Office of Personnel Management Acting Director Beth F. Cobert said in a statement. "In particular, it allows federal employees to obtain the education they need to meet today's workplace challenges. This effort will also help agencies across government close critical skills gaps, enabling the federal workforce to fulfill its mission to serve the American people more efficiently and effectively every single day."
