The 2023 Trades Scholarship application period is now open!

We’re all made stronger by the women who pursue specialized trades, turning unique skillsets into flourishing careers. Their imprint on our communities is invaluable. Every day they make their mark by making our community a better place to live. We are proud to offer $500 scholarship awards to help women go after their dreams by supporting the cost of their education or to purchase the tools needed to pursue their trade. A special thank you goes to the National Association of Women in Construction of South Central PA for their partnership in this scholarship program.
