The Manufacturing Pathway Scholarship is open to 2023 high school graduates and Upper Valley Career Center and Edison State students residing in Shelby County. To be considered, students will be committed to manufacturing or manufacturing support employment in Shelby County or the surrounding area.
Recipients must remain continuously enrolled in the approved program for funding to continue term to term. The scholarship covers only courses that are part of the student’s approved program. Approved program pathways of study include:

In addition to associate degree programs, certificates or short-term technical certificates in the approved program pathways are also eligible.
