Gateway receives another grant from Metallica; advanced manufacturing is again focused on this year’s training

For the fourth year in a row, Gateway Technical College has been named a recipient of Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation Scholarship and will focus on training in the high-demand field of advanced manufacturing.

Funded by Metallica’s All Within My Hands and run by the American Association of Community Colleges, the scholarship was designed to directly support students while reinforcing the importance of vocational and technical education. Gateway is one of 32 community colleges chosen from a competitive field from across the country to receive funding to transform the future of students in the community.

“Gateway’s partnership with the All Within My Hands Foundation has provided life-changing career options for many in our community,” said Bryan Albrecht, President and CEO of Gateway Technical College. “This fourth grant program, in Advanced Manufacturing, will add to the legacy of Metallica Fellows by enhancing their career opportunities through Gateway.”

This year, Gateway will receive a $10,000 donation from AWMH.

Scholarships will be awarded to some of the students in the 14-week program, allowing them to take the training free of charge.

“Our goal for the Metallica Scholars Initiative is to shine a light on workforce training and support the next generation of tradespeople. With the addition of the Metallica Scholars Program 2022-23, our grants will reach more than 2,000 men and women at 32 community colleges in 27 states,” said Pete Delgrosso, Executive Director of All Within My Hands. “We are honored to support these students of all ages and backgrounds and look forward to developing even more the program in the future.”

This is the second consecutive round of AWMH training in which Gateway will offer an Advanced Manufacturing Curriculum. Many of those who have completed the 2021 training have landed jobs immediately in the field, and most earn between $50,000 and $60,000 a year.
