One of the most important objectives of the mrW Foundation is to continually provide opportunities for financial aid to help those qualified individuals who are interested in learning a skill and mastering a trade. Toward that goal, we are continually creating a variety of scholarship programs with like-minded institutions and organizations. Each program has it’s own nuances but all are similar in that they intend to further Mike’s “PR Campaign for Hard Work.” Check back often for the latest offerings.
The 2015-2016 program will award seven graduating high school seniors with a 100 percent tuition-paid scholarship for any of MTI’s workforce training programs. Winners will have the opportunity to select from a number of in-demand vocational courses and programs including welding, HVAC, medical assisting, dental assisting, truck driving and more.
The program, in collaboration with TV personality Mike Rowe, was established in 2013 as a partnership between MTI and the mikeroweWORKS Foundation to foster an interest in a wide range of mechanical trade and allied health careers. Each year, approximately $800,000 in scholarship funds is awarded to help high school students gain the skills and experience necessary to secure meaningful employment in today’s competitive workforce and develop into industry-leading professionals.
Submissions will open Sept. 1 and be accepted through March 25, 2016. Public voting on student videos will run from April 1 to May 1, and winners will be announced on or about May 6.
