Applications are now being accepted for the next round of AMBayArea Skilled Trades Student Scholarships. AMBayArea has awarded a total of four scholarships to local students since launching the AMBayArea Skilled Trades Student Scholarship Fund in 2021.

In August, four $500 scholarships will be awarded to students studying a skilled trade at a Bay Area community college.

Applications will be accepted through June 26. The applications will be reviewed by AMBayArea board members based on the following criteria:

  1. Currently enrolled (for Fall 2023) in one of the 28 Bay Area community colleges.
  2. Studying for a career in one of the manufacturing skilled trades (machining, welding, industrial maintenance, electronics, quality control, etc.).
  3. Able to provide a community college faculty member as a personal reference. The faculty member should be informed of the application and aware that they will be contacted at a later date.

Funds for the scholarships are raised through the annual AMBayArea Golf Benefit held each fall in partnership with Bay Area Community Colleges (BACC).

Save the Date: The next Golf Benefit will be held on Friday, October 20, 2023 at Lake Chabot Golf Course in Oakland.
