2017 Aspiring Tradeswomen Scholarship Fund

If you are a student in a pre-apprentice training, construction readiness, Career and Technical Education Center program, Chicago Women in Trades  has a limited number of scholarships through the Aspiring Tradeswomen Scholarship Fund for women who are currently enrolled or recent graduate and not yet in a registered apprenticeship program or full time employment.

2016 Aspiring Tradeswomen Scholarship recipients participate in a Hands-On Workshop at the Women Build Nations conference.

Scholarship funds are very limited and are provided on a first come, first served basis.  Conference registration is provided to scholarship recipients, however, travel, lodging, and other conference event fees are not included.  Applications must be received from a pre-apprenticeship training program provider.
