Mike Rowe Offering Scholarships for Trade Jobs

posted by Matt Gilcheck - 

Is a 4-year college degree right for you or your son/daughter? Maybe? Maybe not?

Former host of DIRTY JOBS, Mike Rowe has announced (video below) that for the fifth year in a row he will offer scholarships to people who are interested in something other than a 4-year degree. He'll award the winners with a scholarship to train for a trade job like welding, plumbing, or electrical. Rowe believes there are alternative options to a 4-year degree and that the typical college path isn't necessarily the best option for everyone. He's been awarding these scholarships through his mikeroweWORKS Foundation for the past 5 years.

If you or somebody you know is interested in applying, applications are being accepted through June 4th. So far, the program has given away around $5 million to people who want to train for a trade job. There are a few minor "hoops" to jump through, but nothing you wouldn't expect for something like this. To eligible applicants need to be a high school senior, graduate, or have their GED and attend or plan to attend a vocational school.
