“Skilled Trades Schol­ar­ships” are open to all high school grad­u­ates be­tween 2015-2019. There are more than 200 trades with jobs in de­mand. The most com­monly known trades are health care, in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy, ad­vanced man­u­fac­tur­ing, con­struc­tion and au­to­mo­tive.

Stu­dents ap­ply­ing are judged on stu­dent goals, grades, ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, and let­ters of rec­om­men­da­tions. Schol­ar­ships of $2,000 to $4,000 are pre­sented. The pro­gram pur­sued must cul­mi­nate in a cer­tifi­cate, diploma, or as­so­ciate’s de­gree, not a bach­e­lor’s de­gree, in the skilled field they are work­ing to­ward.
