The Polsinello Foundation
Now more than ever, college is recommended for today’s high school graduates. However, a large group of these graduates are not interested in the typical college courses and degrees. Many students are looking to enter a career path in a trade (carpenter, mechanic, beautician etc.) after graduating high school.
Unlike high school graduates going to college, vocational school students do not have many options when it comes to financial aid. That is why the Polsinello Foundation was founded. We are a nonprofit organization that gives scholarships to deserving candidates wishing to attend a vocational school. To date the Polsinello Foundation has given over $200,000 to deserving students in our brief 16-year history.
