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.
For the third year in a row, the mikeroweWORKS Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist eligible individuals who plan to pursue an education in a vocational or similar trade-related program.
This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship Management Services, a division of Scholarship America. Scholarship Management Services is the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship and tuition reimbursement programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability or national origin.

SkillsUSA is pleased to announce that the mikeroweWORKS Foundation is offering a number of scholarships of up to $1,000 for SkillsUSA member students to attend the National Leadership and Skills Conference in Louisville, Ky., June 22-26. This is the fifth consecutive year that the mikeroweWORKS Foundation, in partnership with SkillsUSA, has offered scholarships for SkillsUSA members who compete and place first in their state’s SkillsUSA Championships and who otherwise would not be able to attend the national SkillsUSA Championships for financial reasons. All SkillsUSA students who meet these competition criteria are welcome to apply.
The mikeroweWORKS Foundation scholarship program provides assistance to eligible students who are pursuing an education in a vocational or similar trade-related program. This year, the mikeroweWORKS Foundation has a priority focus on high school and college/postsecondary students who are working toward careers in manufacturing, construction, automotive, engineering and STEM-related trade occupations.
Scholarships will be awarded based on a student-written narrative describing the need for the scholarship, how the student has benefited through participation in SkillsUSA and why the student chose his or her particular trade or technical skill. Applicants are also required to provide a recommendation written by his or her SkillsUSA advisor or the state association director in support of the financial need.
Applicants need to apply online at: http://skillsusa.org/membership-resources/scholarships-financial-aid/the-mikeroweworks-foundation-competitor-scholarship/. Scholarship applications must be received by Friday, May 29 (midnight EDT). Applications submitted after this time will not be considered.
