Did you know…..not every student that advances into higher education signs up for a four-year curriculum?  Some high school graduates seek job training that lasts a year or two and then places them in the workforce.  Technical, trade and vocational schools do not always bask in the financial aid limelight attracted by high-profile universities, but scholarships and grants are available for trade schools too. Corporate benefactors and private associations contribute to educational funding to schools that teach relevant subjects. Trade unions also mobilize funding for members and their families who engage in related education. Individual State Governments also sponsor financial aid initiatives aimed directly at vocational school students. What does this mean for technical school students:  Financial assistance is available for most programs, especially for candidates who qualify for merit-based vocational school scholarships.
