McWane, a world leader in the manufacture of waterworks and monitoring products, recently launched the McWane Scholarship for Skilled Trades, a new initiative aimed at promoting trade and technical education and in celebration of the company’s centennial year of operation, according to a press release.
Through the program, McWane will award up to 60 two-year, $1,000 scholarships for the annual academic year. The program complements McWane’s existing scholarship program, which designates four-year scholarships to dependent children of current team members, and brings the total number of scholarships to 100, one for each year the company has been in business.
“McWane has a history of investing in education in the communities where we operate, and in celebration of our centennial year of operation, we are excited to expand our current scholarship program to focus on skilled trade education,” stated Kevin McCarthy, VP of Human Resources at McWane. “Trade and technical education are vital to forging a path toward successful, lifelong careers, and this program reaffirms our commitment to filling the skilled labor pipeline by providing financial assistance to aspiring workers.”
To be eligible for this program, applicants must be a high school graduate or have a GED equivalent and be enrolled or plan to enroll in a trade-related program in the fall of 2022 at an accredited two-year college, vocational/technical school or other approved technical institute in the United States.
Administered by International Scholarship and Tuition Services Inc., an independent, third party that specializes in managing sponsored educational assistance programs, the deadline to apply for the McWane Scholarship for Skilled Trades is February 10, 2022.
