  • Jessi Combs Foundation Scholarsip

    Posted by Linda Couch on 2/16/2022

    The time is now for women to pursue their dream of a career in the trades and the Jessi Combs Foundation (JCF) is here to fuel those dreams through our annual scholarship program. Jessi Combs was a pioneer female. She worked harder than many – with more grit and determination than most – to earn her position as an expert in several male-dominated industries including the trades. We are dedicated to continuing the work Jessi started including her commitment to inspiring women to pursue a career in the trades. This scholarship program is one of the ways we fulfill our mission to educate, inspire and empower the next-generation of trailblazing and stereo-type breaking women…..like Jessi. More than a scholarship…….the program is a platform for driving change within the cultural fabric of the trades industry; creating pathways for more women to enter, thrive, and succeed. We seek to elevate awareness of the trades as a viable career path for women by shining a spotlight on past scholarship winners, those who are driven to apply and others who have already found fulfillment in their chosen field. Join us by applying or help spread the word by sharing this with someone you know.
