Scholarships aren't just for lawyers, doctors and accountants anymore. In fact, they really haven't been for quite some time. You might be surprised to learn just how many scholarships are available to students who plan to pursue careers more in the "vocational" areas. While there certainly seem to be different paths available to students graduating high school and considering their educational and career options, the two don't need to diverge quite as much as one might think. Sure, there are still community colleges and tech schools that one may attend, perhaps even for a shorter period of time and without a bunch of requirements outside their career focus, there are also plenty of other ways to pursue a career as a mechanic, electrician or plant manager.
Naturally, Scholarships.com has a comprehensive list of scholarships for you to peruse, regardless of which type of institution you plan to attend. Also, there are scholarships available to children of vocational employees and much more. The important thing is that you find something you like doing and are good at and learn how to do it well so people will actually pay you to do something you enjoy! Oh, and that you are able to pay for your education, too, of course!
