The mikeroweWORKS Foundation is concerned with promoting hard work and supporting the skilled trades in a variety of areas. Primarily, we award scholarships to young men and women who have illustrated both an interest and an aptitude around mastering a specific trade. Qualified candidates include those students who want to advance their education through an accredited trade school or apprenticeship program, exhibit high work ethic and need financial assistance.
Most recently, the Foundation has created more than $1.6 million in education scholarships with schools around the country, including Midwest Technical Institute and Tulsa Welding School. Click on “The Next Big Thing” for the latest news.
Additionally, the Foundation supports SkillsUSA by covering travel costs for competing students who could otherwise not afford to attend. We also provide tool stipends for top students that have graduated from accredited AED schools.
The mikeroweWORKS Foundation is supported by donations from individuals and corporations, as well as a variety of fundraisers and sweepstakes. To date, we’ve raised over a million dollars, and hope to distribute much more in the near future.
