The titans of metal showed their softer side last month by launching a generous community college grant program specifically to enhance Career and Technical Education programs across the country…

From Recording Academy:

“Not all heroes wear capes. In fact, some wear all black. Enter Metallica, by now known as much for their massive stadium-filling riffs as their enlarged hearts. The GRAMMY-winning quartet’s All Within My Hands Foundation has announced a new workforce training intuitive that will spread $1 million across ten community colleges to support more than 1,000 students, who will be known as the first-ever Metallica Scholars.

According to a statement from the band, the funds will go to career and technical community college programs that “provide skills and services to students who are looking to enter a traditional trade or other applied learning program.”

Each of the 10 community colleges chosen will receive $100,000 in support. For the selection process, the band partnered with the American Association Of Community Colleges to conduct a competitive application process.”
