The Joint Apprenticeship Committee is offering two types of scholarships to eligible Journey Persons. The first program will offer 10 scholarships for Journey Persons to take Certification programs offered by the International Training Institute. The other program will offer 10 scholarships for Journey Persons to take classes offered at the Apprentice School. The purpose of these programs is to offer Journey Persons training that could help them further their careers. It has been determined that those who need the most assistance are Journey Persons who are unemployed. As a result, these scholarships are being offered to those Journey Persons who are on the Referral Hall list at the time of selection. We encourage applications from Journey Persons even if they are not currently on the Referral Hall list.
