Founders Vocational Scholarships

The Harrison County Community Foundation has provided funds each spring to each of the county’s four high schools for non-renewable scholarships. All Harrison County resident graduating seniors who are pursuing a technical, vocational or trade certification or diploma program are eligible for these funds.

HCCF defines vocational/trade as:

A type of higher learning school that focuses on job skills training rather than academics in the liberal arts. Most trade schools focus on a particular set of skills that are taught to students looking to enter a certain career field and they usually do it in a shorter period of time than traditional universities. Trade schools usually have programs that take less than two years to complete and do not result in an Associate’s or Bachelor’s Degree.

Examples of technical, vocational or trades include, but are not limited to:

Carpentry, HVAC, Hair Design, Precision Machinery, Welding, Cosmetology , Computer Certifications, Plumbing, CNA Certification and Dental Assistant

Scholarship recipients are recommended by a committee to the HCCF Board of Directors.
