Trade School Scholarship - Due 3/28 - Mike Rowe Works

For the sixth year in a row, the Work Ethic Scholarship Program offers a modest pile of money to people willing to learn a trade that’s in demand. We’re looking for the next generation of aspiring workers who will work smart and hard. This program doesn’t focus on test scores, grades, or grammar. It’s about the people who share our values and understand the importance of work ethic, personal responsibility, delayed gratification, and a positive attitude. Fair warning: the Work Ethic Scholarship Program is not for everyone. Even though hard workers are even harder to find, we know you’re out there. If you are someone who shows up early, stays late, and busts your ass day in and day out, you’re invited to apply.
