At Fine Homebuilding we believe that for too long true craftsmanship in America has gone unrecognized and underappreciated. It’s why we’ve established the #KeepCraftAlive scholarship in partnership with SkillsUSA. Through these scholarships, which we’ve awarded for the past three years—and through our collective efforts of the KeepCraftAlive program—we aim to ignite a passion for the trades and to support those who will carry on a legacy of craftsmanship in home building. This is important work, and Fine Homebuilding is committed to doing all that it can to celebrate those who are passionate about building the best homes possible, in the best way possible. Of the 24 students who will be receiving one of our 2019 KeepCraftAlive scholarships to support their continued training and education, nine of them will be training in the categories of welding, masonry, carpentry and cabinetmaking. We’ve proud to feature them here. If you’d like to show your support for KeepCraftAlive and for those who are passionate about pursuing careers in building, please consider making a direct donate to our scholarship fund with SkillsUSA, here.
