The Metallica Scholars program is coming back for a fourth year.

The initiative, which the metal legends launched in 2019 through their All Within My Hands charity foundation, supports workforce education for community college students.

In its first year, Metallica Scholars benefited 10 different community colleges. The program has expanded each year and now includes 32 schools on its roster.

“Our goal for the Metallica Scholars Initiative is to shine a light on workforce education and support the next generation of tradespeople,” said Peter Delgrosso, executive director of All Within My Hands, in a statement.

“With the addition of the 2022-2023 Metallica Scholars program, our grants will reach over 2,000 men and women in 32 community colleges across 27 states,” the statement continues. “We are honored to support these students of all ages and backgrounds and look forward to growing the program even farther in the future.”
