McWane believes skilled trade workers are integral to the future of manufacturing. In celebration of their 100th anniversary, the company recently established the McWane Scholarship Program for Skilled Trades, a new initiative aimed at promoting trade and technical education.
“McWane has a history of investing in education in the communities where we operate, and in celebration of our centennial year of operation, we are excited to expand our current scholarship program to focus on skilled trade education,” stated Kevin McCarthy, VP, Human Resources, McWane. “Trade and technical education are vital to forging a path toward successful, lifelong careers, and this program reaffirms our commitment to filling the skilled labor pipeline by providing financial assistance to aspiring workers.”
McWane will award up to 60 two-year, $1,000 scholarships for the annual academic year to students enrolled/planning to enroll in a trade-related program in the fall of 2022 at an accredited two-year college, vocational/technical school or other approved technical institute in the United States.
