Aaron & Co. Millwork Scholarship Program: How to Apply and Win
At Aaron & Co. Millwork, we firmly believe in investing in our community and the next generation of skilled tradesmen. It is our goal to support these students by providing scholarships and mentoring opportunities – anything we can do to help those striving toward their goals. We want to encourage and inspire the young people who are working hard to enter the skilled trades. Many of these students face financial hurdles which might prevent them from attaining a higher level of education – that’s where our scholarship program comes in!
If you are a Virginia resident who is in 11-12th grade, or graduated in the past year, and plan to enter the woodworking, carpentry, or construction management field, create a video (under 4 minutes in length) explaining why you want to pursue a career in the skilled trades, and how education will help you achieve these goals.
