2019 mikeroweWORKS Foundation Travel Scholarship Recipients Announced

2019 mikeroweWORKS Foundation Travel Scholarship Recipients Announced

The 2019 recipients of the mikeroweWORKS Foundation Travel Scholarship were announced this week.

The mikeroweWORKS Foundation, in partnership with SkillsUSA, offers up to a $1,000 scholarship opportunity for SkillsUSA members who have competed and placed first in their state competition. Scholarships are awarded, based on need, to offset the costs of travel and participation in the SkillsUSA’s National Leadership and Skills Conference. This year’s scholarship program was enhanced through a generous grant of $50,000 from the Charles Koch Charitable Foundation and Koch Industries, bringing the total to $100,000 to support CTE students.

This is the ninth consecutive year that the mikeroweWORKS Foundation has offered travel scholarships to SkillsUSA members who compete and place first in their state’s SkillsUSA Championships but face a financial challenge in going on to the national event.

Congratulations to the scholarship winners and a big thank you to the mikeroweWORKS Foundation!
