The Cruising McMinnville team desires to not only host an amazing car show and cruise, but to also support our local youth as they pursue career paths that are supported by an education through a trade school.
The intent of our scholarships is to promote and support the skilled trades in our area. Graduating seniors in Yamhill County may apply for a scholarship if they are planning on attending a trade school program the following school year. This scholarship is intended to pay for student tuition, books & supplies and tool & equipment costs.
Cruising McMinnville™ grants are used to support activities, equipment and supplies that benefit students in the pursuit of trade education in Yamhill County area schools. We strive to provide funding that supports trade education and makes a difference in our community.
Any Yamhill County school faculty member or trade-related educator of grades 6-12 is eligible to apply for grant funds, a total of 3 grants will be awarded each year.
