Mike Rowe Work Ethic Foundation Scholarship

APPLY NOW MRW 2018 Scholarship - 1

Are you ready to work smart and hard?

Calling all plumbers, carpenters, electricians, welders, auto-technicians, and anyone getting trained for skilled jobs that are in demand!
For the fifth year in a row, the Work Ethic Scholarship Program will give away a free pile of money to those who demonstrate strong work ethic and a thirst for skilled training.
The program launches on Monday, April 2, 2018, and the deadline to submit applications is Monday, June 4, 2018.
If you think you’ve got what it takes, there are some hoops to jump through. Here are a few of them that set us apart from other programs:
  1. The S.W.E.A.T. Pledge must be signed by ALL applicants. S.W.E.A.T stands for, “Skill & Work Ethic Aren’t Taboo.” Basically, you’re signing a solemn oath not to become a lazy, self-entitled drone who blames others for their troubles and expects to be taken care of. Fair warning: this Pledge is not for everyone; so if you’re offended or threatened by its content, it’s probably best to seek out a different pile of free money.
  1. We’ll need to see at least two solid references. No, Mom doesn’t count; we know she loves you. We only accept references from a boss, superior, teacher, or someone you have reported to who will gush about you in a way that will knock our socks off. But we’ll accept more than two references; if more than two people want to sing your praises, send them on.
  1. You’ll need to write an essay and answer a few short questions. Your essay is a chance to make the case for why YOU should get some of the free money. Tell us about yourself. Why are you drawn to the skilled trades? Why do you deserve to receive an award? Let us know any accomplishments or anything you do that shows that you believe in the S.W.E.A.T. Pledge. For example, do you volunteer, or were you an Eagle Scout? Do you put in extra hours helping other students or mentoring kids? What else do you do that sets you apart from all the other applicants? Make your case, and be persuasive.
  2. While we don’t require attendance records, if you can get them, we’d love to see them. Showing up counts.
  3. You’ll need to make a video of yourself. Consider it the audiovisual version of your essay. We’re not talking about a Spielberg feature film here – just a short iPhone video where you make a case for yourself. There are rules on submitting a video so be sure to read those carefully and comply, or the video may not be considered.
Bottom line – Work Ethic Scholarships are for people who are hungry to learn a skill that’s in demand—it’s for the people who wake up early, stay late, and bust their ass day in and day out. Naturally, people like this are hard to find, but they’re out there.
