For many students, a traditional four-year degree isn’t a great fit. But that doesn’t mean they can’t further their education and set themselves on a path toward a great career. Going to trade school can be a great alternative, allowing them to hone valuable skills to help them succeed professionally. If your student lands some great vocational scholarships, they can earn their credentials for less.
