UTI and mikeroweWORKS Foundation Launch $1 Million Scholarship Program

From CollisionWeek News

Universal Technical Institute (UTI), has launched the mikeroweWORKS Foundation (MRW)/UTI Scholarship Program for individuals pursuing technical education at UTI campuses across the country. The Program will make available approximately $1,000,000 in tuition scholarships for future students training for a career in the transportation industry.

Mike Rowe, the creator, executive producer and host of Discovery Channel’s “Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe,” is challenging the idea that an expensive four-year degree is the best and only path for most people, while calling attention to thousands of career opportunities with companies who are struggling to fill jobs that require technical skill and expertise.

“We are thrilled to partner with the mikeroweWORKS Foundation and join Mike’s mission to spread the word about the importance of technical education and filling jobs in the skilled trades,” said Kimberly McWaters, chairman and CEO of UTI. “This new scholarship program provides hard-working men and women across the country with the opportunity to follow their passion and obtain careers in the transportation industry, where the demand for technicians continues to rise.”

MRW/UTI scholarships are available to eligible, enrolled students who apply and qualify except Pennsylvania residents and UTI-Exton students due to state regulations.

Applications for the MRW/UTI Scholarship Program are being accepted through 5:00 p.m. PDT on July 12, 2014.

More information about the MRW/UTI Scholarship Program is available online.
