Four area students who are getting ready for occupations in the Dubuque-area workforce have been awarded education scholarships by the Dubuque Area Labor-Management Council. With the addition of these four students it brings a total of eleven students that have been awarded a scholarship from the Dubuque Area Labor-Management Council.
To show that “there is a future for young people in the tri-state area,” the program is part of the Council’s goal to retain a higher percentage of school graduates in the area workforce and to develop and maintain a highly skilled workforce.
The Education Scholarship program is designed to increase awareness about skilled occupations in the Dubuque area where there is a demand for good workers who need specific education or training to qualify for available jobs. Applicants must indicate that they want to work in the Dubuque area following the completion of their education.
Employers and unions may become a sponsor of the program or join the Labor-Management Council to make the immediate families of their employees and members eligible for grant assistance.
