To be eligible, students must be working on post-secondary education goals involving welding, precision machining, small engine repair, bricklaying, diesel and auto mechanics, and similar trades. Students must also be a Richland County resident or a graduate from a Richland County high school who is pursuing a program at an accredited school.
Scholarship grant dollars will be sent directly to the school in August.
