Engineering depends heavily on a highly skilled workforce to manufacture, implement and maintain its innovative products and services. But as in engineering, there aren’t enough workers to meet demand.
Aerospace company Lockheed Martin is launching a new scholarship to encourage students to pursue in-demand technical and vocational degrees. It provides as much as $6,600 in funding for fields such as computers and cybersecurity, aircraft maintenance and avionics, and advanced manufacturing.
The opportunity is for recent high school graduates or students who have not yet obtained a bachelor’s degree. All must be U.S. citizens. The deadline to apply is March 12.
