To honor recently retired longtime CEO Tom Donohue and his commitment to workforce development, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation announced a $50,000 scholarship fund to support skills training that will empower more Americans to get ahead in their careers and build better lives. The Donohue Family Foundation has matched the gift to provide a total of $100,000 in scholarship funding for individuals across the United States who are pursuing high-demand careers that don’t require a four-year degree.
A total of 50 Donohue Family SkillPointe Scholarships in the amount of $2,000 each will be awarded. Scholarships are available to individuals of all backgrounds pursuing vocational training in industries such as construction, communications, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, public service, technology, and transportation.
