Toronto Raptors standout rookie forward Scottie Barnes is teaming up with the Skilled Trades College of Canada (STC) to launch the Scottie Barnes Scholarship, which will give black and indigenous students a chance to begin a career in the skilled trades.

“Traditional university is great, but not a one-size-fits-all solution for every student – STC offers educational opportunities that can empower young people with amazing career opportunities,” said Barnes. “I’m excited to team with STC to raise awareness about the benefits of trade schools, and also make a community impact by delivering a scholarship that offers an opportunity to students who might have faced bias or not had the same chances as others.”
