AMBayArea Skilled Trades Student Scholarship Fund

AMBayArea awards scholarships to Bay Area community college students to support the future of manufacturing.

The AMBayArea Skilled Trades Student Scholarship Fund was established in 2021 by the Association of Manufacturers Bay Area (AMBayArea). AMBayArea presents local community college students studying in skilled trades programs with scholarships each spring and fall. Funds are raised through the Annual Golf Benefit presented by AMBayArea and Bay Area Community Colleges, as well as donations from companies and individuals.

  1. Currently enrolled in one of the 28 Bay Area community colleges
