A new scholarship fund at the NH Charitable Foundation (NHCF) will help Bethlehem residents pursue career training programs. According to a statement, the Fresh Tracks Medallion Fund is the newest of 26 Medallion scholarship funds open to learners of any age who are training in the trades or pursuing certifications in emerging technical sectors and other high-growth occupations in demand by NH employers. Scholarships help cover costs for certificates, licensing, apprenticeships and two-year college degrees.
Since 1996, the Medallion family of scholarship funds at the NHCF has helped nearly 1,200 students get education and training to enter high-demand fields in NH. More than $1.7 million has been awarded in Medallion scholarships.
“The Medallion Funds are helping so many people transition from just getting by to thriving in high-demand professions,” says Judy Burrows, director of student aid at NHCF. “We are thrilled to have this special resource for Bethlehem residents so we can help people get a foothold up on the economic ladder by acquiring skills that NH businesses and communities desperately need.”
