As the Great Lakes Bay Region seeks to fill a critical need for skilled trades workers, a local business organization is offering scholarships to students. The Professional Women in Building Council, part of the Home Builders Association of Saginaw, is offering $7,500 in scholarships. The educational grants are offered to students studying technical fields within the building industry. They are available to part-time students working in the industry or full time students seeking a job in the skilled trades.
