Applications sought for labor scholarship

Nationwide, and right here in our community, there is a great need for skilled tradespersons, including machinists, plumbers, electricians, and more.

The Dunkirk Area Labor Council Scholarship at Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation is awarded annually to students pursuing an education in the trades, manufacturing technology, auto technology, or auto body repair.

Graduating seniors from the following schools are eligible to apply: Brocton, Cassadaga, Chautauqua Lake, Dunkirk, Forestville, Fredonia, Pine Valley, Silver Creek, Westfield, and BOCES. Applications are available from the school counseling centers or on the NCCF’s website at nccfoundation.org/Dunkirk-area-labor-council-scholarship. Please direct questions to Scholarship Coordinator Michele Starwalt-Woods via email at scholarships@nccfoundation.org or by calling 716-366-4892.
