The mikeroweWORKS Foundation and SkillsUSA 2011 Scholarship Opportunity
Champions At Work
The mikeroweWORKS Foundation, in partnership with SkillsUSA, is proud to announce a new scholarship opportunity for SkillsUSA members who have competed and placed first in their state association competition.
The scholarship is to provide support for SkillsUSA state contest winners who have insufficient chapter, school or community resources to participate at the 2011 National SkillsUSA Championships. A total of twenty $1,000 scholarships will be given away to help offset the costs of travel and to participate in the National SkillsUSA Championships. The winners will also have the opportunity to attend a luncheon with a member of The mikeroweWORKS Foundation staff at the Downtown Marriott Hotel in Kansas City on Tuesday, June 21st.
Acceptance is based on a narrative of one-page, or less that identifies the student’s need for the scholarship and lack of school or community resources. A student may be nominated with a letter of recommendation written by their advisor, or state director. Applications are to be sent to the national office of SkillsUSA for review and postmarked by Friday, June 3. The national office will notify the winners the following week.
