The Metallica Scholars – Women in Manufacturing program is ready to rock the manufacturing industry. Created thanks to a gift from The Metallica All Within My Hands Foundation and the American Association of Community College, the program will provide financial assistance for women to receive education in traditionally male-dominated career pathways.
