South Central College

Autumn Sikel, Tiffany Maxa and Bruce Hougo are the first three SCC students to receive scholarships through the Metallica Scholars Initiative.
SCC will award 20 more scholarships through the initiative this spring semester. The scholarships can cover tuition, fees and required program tools. New students pursuing mechatronics and welding at SCC’s Faribault campus or advanced agriculture technician and machine tool technology at the North Mankato campus are eligible.
The initiative is funded through a multimillion-dollar investment from Metallica’s foundation “All Within My Hands,” MSI provides scholarships in critical workforce programs at community colleges nationwide. SCC was selected from a competitive pool of applicants to receive $100,000 to support scholarships for new students beginning specific programs.
