The West Virginia Hardwood Alliance Zone is awarding up to $9,000 in scholarships to the NHLA 10-week Lumber Grading Course to employers AND individuals within the 9-county Hardwood Alliance Zone. You must be a resident of these counties to be eligible.
Scholarships will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis. A HAZ company may be awarded more than one sholarship if unclaimed scholarships remain. However, the goal is to help as many companies as possible and priority will be given to a company for their first student.
Companies and individuals will pay full tuition up front. Upon successful completion (i.e. students receive their certification) HAZ will distribute scholarships on a reimbursement basis.
Classes will take place at the WV Wood Technology Center in Elkins, WV.
Lodging is available.
