Scholarship for Students Pursuing Skilled Trades

In May 2016, the Pennsylvania Chamber Educational Foundation teamed up with the mikeroweWORKS Foundation to increase public awareness around the growing demand for workers in the skilled trades, and to help award scholarships specifically to Pennsylvania students through the Work Ethic Scholarship Program.

Since then, thanks to generous donations from the Pennsylvania business community, the PA Chamber Educational Foundation has helped provide nearly  $195,000  in work ethic scholarships for approximately  94 Pennsylvania students  who are entering into the skilled trades in the Commonwealth. And now the  2020 Scholarship  is open and available for students who are pursuing an education in the skilled trades to apply.
