Scholarship available for students in a trade or vocational program
In today’s economy, there is a high demand for employees in trade and vocational jobs that require specialized training. These jobs include machinists, farmers, construction workers, plumbers, electricians, cosmetologists and others.
To help people who are interested in trade or vocational programs receive the training they need to have fulfilling careers, the Harrison County Community Foundation offers the Miles’ Fund scholarship. The scholarship application is available at www.hccfindiana.org in the Nontraditional Scholarships tab. Applications must be submitted online by Wednesday, Oct. 31 at 4 p.m. to be considered.
Applicants must be legal residents of Harrison County, be between 18 and 21 years of age and are planning to study in a vocational or trade program.
The Miles’ Fund scholarship can be used for tuition, books, course-related fees, required tools, uniforms or supplies. Tools, uniforms and supplies must be verified by the student’s course syllabus and class schedule. Preference is given to students who have not received funding in previous application cycles.
