It’s scholarship season at SkillsUSA, and there’s a variety of great opportunities available to qualified students. Here are two examples:
Robert Flint Student Leadership Development Scholarship
SkillsUSA members with financial needs may be eligible for this scholarship to attend Activate and Leverage leadership training at the national conference this June or the Washington Leadership Training Institute (WLTI) in September. Four scholarships of $1,300 each will be awarded to attend Activate and Leverage training, and four scholarships of $800 each will be awarded to attend WLTI. Nominations can only be made by a state association director, so you’ll need to contact your director if you’d like to apply. You can find state director contact information here: www.skillsusa.org/about/state-directors/.
National Technical Honor Society (NTHS) Scholarships
The NTHS annually awards four $1,000 scholarships to registered members at SkillsUSA’s national conference. To be eligible, students must be active, dues-paying members of both SkillsUSA and NTHS. To apply, schools must also operate an active NTHS chapter.
More information on these and other opportunities can be found at www.skillsusa.org/membership-resources/scholarships-financial-aid/. Good luck, and make sure to stay ahead of those deadlines!
