RCCF Establishes New Trades Scholarship

The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) and fund initiators Karl and Carol Schmidt are pleased to announce that a new scholarship fund has been established. The Andrew Schmidt Trades Scholarship will assist Roscommon County graduates and graduating seniors who are enrolled or enrolling in a skilled craft field through an accredited trade/technical/vocational school, college, university, or community college. Preference will be given to applicants who are enrolled into a qualified apprenticeship program. Eligible students will be able to apply for this scholarship beginning in 2019.

The Schmidt’s started this scholarship in honor of their Son Andrew Schmidt to promote and encourage individuals to learn a career through a combination of classroom instruction and on-the-job training. Areas of study may include but are not limited to advanced integrated manufacturing, automotive technology and building trades.

The deadline for scholarship applications is February 28, 2019 at 3:00 pm.
