Lockheed Martin Vocational Scholarship

Lockheed Martin has launched a new scholarship program that will award up to 150 scholarships.

Beginning in 2020, we are awarding up to $6,600 to as many as 150 recipients this year. The scholarship will fund degrees at accredited vocational-technical schools to prepare students for careers in technology and/or advanced manufacturing that does not require a bachelor’s or advanced degree.

The application process is now closed.
