New RCBI scholarship for southern WV students announced

Two students from McDowell, Mercer, Wyoming or Summers counties will be awarded full scholarships to earn their associate degree through the nationally recognized machinist training program offered by RCBI and Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College. To be eligible, students must submit applications by December 2, 2019.

“Like RCBI, the Bowen Foundation is committee to the education of young people in southern West Virginia,” said Charlotte Weber, RCBI director and CEO. “These scholarships enable two state students to pursue careers in an in-demand field and provide the opportunity for them to live, work and prosper in their own communities.”
