Introducing the Mather High School Alumni Fund's new scholarship ...
This has been created to help Mather graduating seniors that plan to attend a technical school rather than a 4 year college. Why? Over 50% of graduating seniors from Mather pursue careers that do not require a college degree. We want to help these students reach their career goals.
OUR TASK NOW IS TO RAISE MONEY for the inaugural scholarships to the Class of 2022 seniors. A donation in the amount of your choice is appreciated and will support the students ability to pursue career goals.
We also have two exciting opportunities for you to help us:
- Have a scholarship named after you or your company! When you commit to an annual donation of $5,000.00 or more a Build Your Career Scholarship for a particular trade will carry your name.
- Become a member of the Founder's Circle and donate $500.00 or more.
What's in it for you? Donors in both categories will be recognized with their name and company name/logo (if appropriate) on this page.
"Getting an education in the skilled trades pays off more quickly (and sometimes just more in general) than going to college and getting a bachelor’s degree" (Marcus, Jon “The Hechinger Report” December 31, 2021)
The range of technical disciplines we would support is vast, including:
|Automotive Technology||Cosmetology||Massage Therapy|
|and many many more!|
The Mather Seniors will have access to information about these exciting career choices. One or more Mather seniors will be selected annually to receive a scholarship. A selection committee of alumni will review applications and award the scholarship(s).
If you are able to offer a Mather student an internship or apprenticeship either during high school or while they are attending technical school, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to help match a student to your industry.
