A legendary rock band is giving back to colleges around the U.S.

Metallica is giving money to ten different community colleges as a part of their scholars initiative grant.

The band's All Within My Hands foundation will award each institution with $100,000.

This past week the winners were announced and many were excited for what's next to come.

WSU Tech President Sheree Utash said, "This grant will allow us the opportunity to take 25 women from our community and be able to create a training opportunity and an educational opportunity and a career opportunity for either welding, machining, or sheet metal assembly."

President Utash says the new program will begin in July 2019.
