Rockport business to offer scholarships

Apr 05, 2021
Seacoast Security, of Rockport, will offer two scholarships to trades students attending a Maine technical school in the Fall of 2021.

Rockport — Seacoast Security, Inc., of Rockport, has launched a scholarship program to help fund further education in the skilled trades. The program offers two $1,000 scholarships to students pursuing a career in the trades at a Maine technical school in the Fall of 2021.

Recognizing the shortage of skilled tradesmen, Seacoast Security is taking steps to encourage more young people to enter these fields and pursue fulfilling careers here in New England. According to The Association of General Construction survey in 2020, 72% of companies surveyed said that worker shortages were one of their biggest challenges.

Karma O’Donal, marketing & public relations manager at Seacoast Security Inc., said “Hiring skilled workers is always one of our biggest challenges. Like many companies here in Maine, we need skilled tradesmen to complete our work and take care of our customers effectively. We are hopeful that this scholarship program will encourage more young people, and those looking for a new career, to consider the trades and pursue education in these fields.”

Students must be attending a Maine technical school in the Fall of 2021. Payments will be made directly to the school on behalf of the student. To apply, students can visit and apply online. The scholarship application deadline is April 30, after which the Seacoast Security scholarship committee will review all applications and announce the winners early in May of 2021.
