Rock the Trades Scholarship

Rock the Trades™ is a workforce development initiative celebrating the American industrial worker—and the Rock the Trades Scholarship Program empowers the dreams of those pursuing careers in the skilled industrial trades across the United States. 

Students pursuing an associate’s or vocational-technical degree or certification in the skilled trades that serve the energy, manufacturing and/or construction sectors are eligible to apply. Applicants must be high school graduates, GED holders or current college undergraduates who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year college or vocational-technical school for the fall 2022 or spring 2023 term. (Students pursuing a bachelor degree or beyond are not eligible.) 

Only the first 100 applications will be accepted, and three scholarships of $2,500 each will be awarded.
