Three Rivers College Foundation Receives $2,500 Grant from Chelsea Groton Foundation

Norwich, CT – The Three Rivers College Foundation was recently awarded $2,500 from the Chelsea Groton Foundation to fund a unique workforce training completion program for former Ridley-Lowell students. After the unfortunate closing of Ridley-Lowell this past spring, Three Rivers Community College opened its doors to students to help them complete their training programs.
The Three Rivers College Foundation applied for grant monies through the Chelsea Groton Foundation to support these displaced students on their path to training completion. The Chelsea Groton Foundation is committed to supporting the long-term growth of our community through supporting education, economic development and various community initiatives. Together, the Three Rivers College and Chelsea Groton Foundations will provide a pathway to success for students in our region.
There are several non-credit Workforce programs that would be a natural fit for Ridley-Lowell students, including the Medical Administrative Assistant Program, Medical Billing & Coding Program and Dental Assisting Program. Students can start as soon as this summer with Medical Math. To discuss Workforce courses and enrollment, call 860-215-9028 or visit
Former Ridley-Lowell students would also benefit from Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, A.S., the newest associate degree program at Three Rivers that begins this fall. Graduates of this program will be eligible to sit for the exam as a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA). For more information on credit courses and degree programs, contact the Welcome Desk at 860-215-9016 or visit
