Bottom line, all monies collected by the Foundation will go to further the mission of mikeroweWORKS – and that is to promote the skilled trades in areas of public awareness, reducing stigmas, education, career planning and job opportunities as well as support organizations that get us there. Yeah, it’s a trade thing.
On behalf of Mike Rowe and mikeroweWORKS, we’re excited to announce that the mikeroweWORKS Foundation has partnered with Scholarship America to establish the mikeroweWORKS Foundation Education Scholarship Program. The total amount to be distributed this year is $250,000. The program is set up to award individual scholarships to applicants who meet the eligibility requirements for an amount up to $2,500.
Scholarship America, the nation’s largest non-profit, private-sector scholarship and educational support organization, has distributed more than $2.7 billion to 1.8 million students across the country through various programs.
This program is for students who are enrolled in a skilled trade program at a two-year college, vocational school or approved training institute. Instructions for completing and submitting the application are provided when an option is selected.
