The Medallion Fund was created by a group of area businessmen who recognize that a skilled workforce is critical for expanding economic development. The goal of the fund is to assist individuals who are interested attending accredited vocational or technical programs for the purpose of improving their workforce skills, especially in areas of need in the state of New Hampshire.
When to apply:
There is no deadline. Applications are accepted at any time during the year. The selection committee meets monthly to consider awards.
Who should apply?
New Hampshire residents of any age who are enrolling in any accredited vocational or technical program that does NOT lead to a four-year baccalaureate or advanced degree.
For example, a candidate might be planning to attend a community college, vocational/technical school, trade school, apprenticeship, or other short-term training program such as automotive technology, tractor-trailer school, HVAC certification, or nursing assistant certification.
Because Medallion Fund resources are limited, the selection committee gives preference to the following:
Applicants whose fields are in the traditional manufacturing trade sector such as plumbing, electrical, construction, machining, etc.
Applicants who have a clear vision for how their education will help them achieve or improve their employment goals.
Applicants who have had little or no other educational or training opportunities.
Applicants who have made a commitment to their educational program both financially and otherwise.
If you receive an award, you can expect the award to be sent to you within two weeks of the committee’s action.
