Funded by Metallica’s All Within My Hands (AWMH) and led by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), the Metallica Scholars Initiative was designed to directly support students while also elevating the importance of career and technical education. This work is highlighted at a global level by leveraging the influence of Metallica who continue to speak out on the dignity of professional trades and community colleges that prepare students.

“It’s exciting to see Metallica — a band acclaimed around the globe — support career and technical education and amplify the value of skilled trades,” said ECTC Director of Workforce Solutions and Technical Programs Mike Hazzard. “If you’re ready to prepare for a high-demand, high-paying career, but the cost of training and education has held you back, you need to apply to become an ECTC Metallica Scholar.”

ECTC is the only college in Kentucky and one of 23 nationwide to be selected for the Metallica Scholars Initiative.
