Skilled trades are the backbone of our society and can be lucrative, stable career opportunities. While often overlooked, higher education in a trade can be critical in order to set a firm foundation to build that career on.

Russell Koci is a retired machinist, farmer and do-it-all craftsman. This scholarship celebrates his achievements by seeking out others cut from a similar cloth. Those who seek a career in trades such as (but not limited to) fabrication, construction, farming, plumbing, electrical and beyond are encouraged to apply.

Any current trade school student or high school senior that is interested in attending a trade school may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, answer the below questions in a short essay.
