    Metallica’s Scholarship Initiative, a ‘Lifesaver’ for College Students, Expands for

    Metallica‘s philanthropic efforts continue in 2022, with the band adding more colleges to their growing Metallica Scholars Initiative after three successful years.

    In the first year of the Scholars Initiative, thanks to the metal band’s All Within My Hands charity, there was a 90 percent job placement rate for those receiving aid in 2019. The next year, the Metallica Scholars Initiative expand from 10 to 15 schools receiving benefits.

    Now, 10 more colleges have been added to the growing list of institutions receiving financial assistance from Metallica. It’s already paying dividends to affected students.

    “You guys are seriously a lifesaver,” pupil Samantha Sparks, a welder from Columbia Gorge Community College, wrote to Metallica. “I applied for so many scholarships throughout my time in college and never received any of them.”

    She continued, “I honestly didn’t think I was special enough. I had to take out a loan and put myself in debt to follow a dream. Thanks to you, I don’t have to take out any more money! I can just focus on school and not worry about money. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”

    The initiative was designed to support community colleges and their career and technical education programs. The band teamed up with the American Association of Community Colleges to help determine recipients in 2019 and 10 colleges from communities that had supported Metallica during their touring were selected to compete in the application process with each receiving $100,000 toward programs helping to train students for placement in the American workforce.

    “The impact of the Metallica Scholars Initiative has been extremely gratifying,” said Dr. Edward Frank, Executive Director of All Within My Hands. “We are indebted to all the schools, the AACC, and co-sponsors such as Wolverine, for their dedication to making this program successful and their help in changing the lives of so many people. This transformative effect is exactly what the band and the board had hoped for when we started this program.”
