Columbia Gorge Community College is recipient of a $100,000 grant by Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation (AWMH) and the American Association of Community Colleges.
Our CGCC Metallica Scholars Initiative project will support 45 students enrolling for Fall 2021 across the following three programs with a $1,700 tuition scholarship and up to 80% tool and equipment scholarship:
- Advanced Manufacturing & Fabrication (43 credit certificate)
- Construction Technology (33 credit certificate)
- Electro-Mechanical Technology (43 credit certificate, 99 credit AAS)
To apply for the Fall 2021 Metallica Scholarship, students planning to enroll in one of these three programs should complete the online Metallica Scholarship form by by 5 p.m. on Sept. 27, 2021.
We invite you to share this opportunity (and our brand new on-campus housing at The Dalles Campus) with your networks. Information about all our programs is on our CGCC website. You’ll also find information about the Columbia Gorge Regional Skills Center, which opens in September on The Dalles Campus.
AWMH was founded by the band Metallica who, like us, are huge supporters of the transformative power of career and technical education for our students and communities.
