SFNE Scholarshp
SFNE is currently accepting applications for the scholarship, which was established to assist qualified students, and to encourage interest in the fabricated structural steel construction industry.

SFNE will award two $1,000 scholarships.

The deadline to apply for the SFNE Scholarship is July 2, 2018.
The SFNE scholarship winners will be announced on August 1, 2018.

SFNE is reaching out to all vocational schools in New England to promote the scholarship. We need your help in providing contacts of schools you have already developed a relationship with. To submit your contact, please email  julia@ssfne.org !
The SFNE scholarship is just one way that the association is engaged in a more comprehensive effort to address the shortage of skilled trade workers moving into the steel fabrication industry in New England. To increase interest in the steel fabrication trade, SFNE will engage high school and vocational school students to promote the viability of trade careers. 

For some time, emphasis has been placed on preparing high school students for college. SFNE wants to reverse that trend and develop relationships with teachers and schools to demonstrate that a career and salaries in the steel fabrication trade can be comparable with a college graduate.

The SFNE scholarship will be funded through member donations and we would appreciate your contribution.
