Scholarships for Welding Majors

Welders can work in a variety of places, from construction sites to aerospace manufacturing facilities to power plants. Because of this, a career in welding is likely to yield plenty of different opportunities. If you’re a welding major, you might want to consider applying for a scholarship in order to help lessen the cost of your education. Many of the available scholarships are offered by the American Welding Society on either a national or state-wide level, while others are offered by local foundations such as the Mount Pleasant Area Community Foundation in Michigan and the Pauahi Foundation in Hawaii. Potential scholarship recipients typically need to possess a high school diploma or GED, and may also be required to submit letters of recommendation or write an application essay.
