Mike Rowe Scholarship
Mike Rowe spends a significant amount of time discussing how the nation’s connection with jobs is shattered. Additionally, he highlights the widening skills gap and refutes the widely held belief that a four-year degree is the best choice for the majority of people. The Mike Rowe Foundation argues that Skill & Work Ethic Aren’t Taboo (S.W.E.A.T.). The Foundation offers financial aid through its scholarship programs, which include the Work Ethnic Scholarship Program, to qualifying individuals who wish to acquire a skill that is in demand.
This scholarship is intended for freshmen, undergraduates, and graduate students in the United States. It is only available for citizens of the U.S.
The scholarship amount has no specific limit to what can be awarded to each individual that merits it. If chosen as a recipient, a student can only receive the scholarship once and it is worth at least $400,000. The award is not also given in cash but disbursed to an approved institution to cover the cost of college tuition or vocational program.
