SkillsUSA Scholarship Opportunities Now Open for Applications
The mikeroweWORKS Foundation Travel Scholarship

Applications for several scholarships are now open to benefit SkillsUSA students in pursuit of higher education or certification in their chosen field. Help spread the word so more SkillsUSA students can take full advantage of these opportunities:

 

The mikeroweWORKS Foundation, in partnership with SkillsUSA, offers a $1,000 scholarship opportunity for SkillsUSA members who have competed and placed first in their state association competition.

 

The scholarship provides support for SkillsUSA state contest winners who have insufficient personal, chapter, school or community resources to participate at the 2019 SkillsUSA Championships in Louisville, Ky. Scholarships will be awarded, based on need, to offset the costs of travel and participation in the national championships.

 

The award is based on a student-written, one-page narrative describing the student’s financial need for the scholarship including the lack of school or community resources. Preference will be given to applicants from program areas of manufacturing and industrial applications, construction, technical computer applications, firefighting, electronics and transportation.

 

Students may be nominated with a letter of recommendation written by their SkillsUSA advisor or state director. Applications must be submitted via the online form to the national headquarters of SkillsUSA for review and determination by midnight ET May 15. Recipients will be informed on June 1.

Full details and application can be found at: www.skillsusa.org/membership-resources/scholarships-financial-aid/the-mikeroweworks-foundation-travel-scholarship/
