Metallica To Contribute $1.5 Million In Grants To Community Colleges This Year


Metallica have announced their plans for the second year of their ‘Metallica Scholars Initiative‘, which finds them issuing $1.5 million in grants to over a dozen community colleges in the United States. The band launched that program last year via their All Within My Hands organization, donating $1,000,000 in grants.

According to the band’s camp, last year’s initiative ‘resulted in more than 700 first-wave Metallica Scholars with an overall 80-90% program completion rate, and a 93% job placement for those who completed their certifications/studies!’
