SkillsUSA Robert L. Flint WLTI Scholarship
The SkillsUSA Student Leadership Development Scholarship was established in 2007 with financial support from Robert L. Flint, former Caterpillar executive and SkillsUSA board president (1998-99). The scholarship provides financial support for a total of four students who are recognized for having strong leadership potential and who would greatly benefit from national leadership training but do not have the sufficient resources to participate in the Washington Leadership Training Institute (WLTI).
State SkillsUSA directors should solicit the lead chapter advisor for nominations, and then choose one nominee’s application to submit to the SkillsUSA headquarters. Once nomination applications are received, a panel of SkillsUSA staff and leadership trainers will evaluate the applications and select the top candidates. Each WLTI scholarship is for $800 and is provided to cover WLTI registration, lodging (four nights, double room), all meals, $50 spending money, and bus transportation to all conference activities.
The extended deadline for applications is midnight ET on August 13, 2021. Only state SkillsUSA directors may submit applications for scholarship candidates. Contact your state director if you’d like to be considered for this scholarship.
