We are challenging the persistent belief that a traditional college degree is the only answer for our youth. We strive to combine the social and collaborative skills, gained through the liberal arts, with technical aptitude. Gifted and talented young Mainers want to be intellectually stimulated, creative, and innovative; they want a career in the trades.
As the average age of Maine trade workers continues to rise, it’s time to invest in the future of our state! The Maine Blue Collar Scholarship Foundation aims to break down barriers and reinvigorate the trades that built America.
