Women are still highly underrepresented in technical fields and the trades.

Women often aren’t encouraged to pursue the trades due to systemic gender gaps, limited female mentors, and workplace bias. In order to create more opportunities for women and to balance out the industries, it’s crucial that women have the support they need to pursue the careers of their dreams, even if they’re untraditional. 

This scholarship seeks to help young women enter male-dominated career fields by supporting them through their pursuit of higher education.

Any female high school senior, trade school student, or associate degree student who is pursuing a career in the trades, a technical field, or a two-year degree/certificate path may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us why you’re passionate about training in the trades and how you’ll use your drive to inspire other women to pursue similar paths.
