Blue Collar Backbone Scholarship

Blue Collar Backbone is committed to the men and women who provide the comforts, amenities, and necessities that keep our country glued together. To the individuals pouring their blood, sweat, and tears, into the crafts that keep the American dream alive and well. But that all starts with the rejuvenation of the workforce as people leaving step into their well-earned retirement. So, if you are among the student body that would prefer to not attend college and would rather attend a trade school or start an apprenticeship, below are 3 essay questions. Mail in your responses with a completed application form and a copy of your high school transcripts to the address printed at the bottom of the application form.
