Cleveland- A new Trade Scholarship program was launched by the UTUIA adding 50 more scholarships to the current scholarship program.  These scholarships are designed for those students who opt for an education in an industrial skilled trade versus a four year traditional education.   When we talked to  the brothers and sisters of SMART TD, at both Regional Meetings, we promised to develop a scholarship for skilled trades. As of January 1st 2016, we are proud to say that we have launched this new program.  There is a dire shortage of skilled labor in this country. Our long history and close ties with organized labor made this a natural fit for our Association.    To find out more about the Trade Scholarship program  click here.  For an e-application  click here.
