Constellium partners with West Virginia University Parkersburg to sponsor skilled trades scholarships


As the Constellium Skilled Trades Scholarship program enters its second year, the Ravenswood facility and West Virginia University Parkersburg are celebrating 10 new student recipients with a signing ceremony today. 

The Skilled Trades Scholarship program, a collaboration between Constellium ​and WVU Parkersburg, provides financial assistance to selected high school graduates to help them earn an associate degree in Multi-Craft Technology or Reliability and Maintenance Technology. After students complete their degree, they are eligible to enter a five-year full-time employment agreement with Constellium Ravenswood. 

“This is a great opportunity for students to earn a degree and start a skilled trade career with us,” said Buddy Stemple, CEO of Constellium Ravenswood LLC. “We are always eager to train and recruit talent in our local communities and we thank West Virginia University Parkersburg for their leadership and their long-term partnership with us. I would also like to thank the West Virginia Department of Commerce and our local leaders for their continued support and engagement.”
