High school students seeking hands-on training in technician work and maintenance repair may apply to the Constellium Skilled Trades Scholarship Program.

The Skilled Trades Scholarship program is a collaboration between Constellium and WVU Parkersburg to help provide financial assistance to earn an associate degree in Multi-Craft Technology or Reliability and Maintenance Technology. After students complete their degree, they will have a five-year employment commitment with Constellium.

“This is a real opportunity for students in the Mid-Ohio Valley to experience an academic path to a trades position,” said Dr. Torie Jackson, WVU Parkersburg vice president of Institutional Advancement. “By partnering with companies like Constellium, we are able to provide programs that meet the needs of employers and help students find employment.”

Applicants must be a current high school senior, obtain a letter of recommendation, supply proof of their GPA and school attendance and successfully pass a drug and/or alcohol screening process. Scholarship recipients will be selected based on the above criteria and interview process.
