SkillsUSA, in partnership with Fine Homebuilding Magazine, announces a scholarship initiative. The #KeepCraftAliveScholarship will open Feb. 1.
Fine Homebuilding will be awarding scholarships to SkillsUSA high school or college/postsecondary students continuing their education or certification programs in construction-related fields, such as architectural drafting, carpentry, cabinetmaking, electrical and residential wiring, HVACR, masonry, woodworking and plumbing.
In the spirit of the #KeepCraftAlive movement, applicants should celebrate the value and meaning of true craftsmanship in their trades and plan to continue their educations in community colleges, undergraduate programs or industry certification curricula.
Selections will be based on completion of an application, along with a 300-word essay showing applicants’ passion for their craft and a letter of support from a teacher, administrator, SkillsUSA advisor or educational/professional mentor.
Application deadline is May 30 at midnight EDT. Apply online today.
