Scholarship Resources - Trades

  • At the beginning of 2011, the landscape of trade occupations began to shift. The key reason: the "baby boom" generation began reaching retirement age. Over the next decade and further, there will be a growing shortage of skilled trades workers. Skilled trades are occupations that require a skill, knowledge or ability which can be obtained at a college, technical school or through specialized training. 

    As many students begin gravitating toward trade and technical programs, as an alternative to 4 year university programs, the College & Career Access Center is dedicated to finding scholarship resources to assist. The following links provide access to scholarships designed specifically for vocational, technical, and skilled trades programs:
