Being skilled in the trades can lead to many career opportunities as there is a shortage of tradespeople.
While vocational education enrollment dipped in the 1980s and 1990s, it has risen in recent decades due to the many fields that are growing without requiring a traditional four-year degree, such as infrastructure and manufacturing. As more jobs open in the trades, the next generation of workers needs to be supported throughout their education.
This scholarship aims to help high school seniors in Ohio or Pennsylvania who are interested in attending trade school after graduation.
