  Apprentice Scholarship Application

The Association of Women Contractors (AWC) is providing two types of scholarships for outstanding FEMALES.
This is the apprentice scholarship information.

    Apprentice scholarships - female apprentice level workers. Open to:
     * females currently working as a registered apprentice or graduating their trade
      or training program spring of 2022 and will be starting as an apprentice and

     * a Minnesota resident.

The authorized distribution for new awards is determined annually based on the amount of funds raised. Recipients will be selected based on several factors: work experience, activities, goals, and financial need.

Applications must be received online or postmarked by April 30, 2022. All eligible applications are reviewed by a scholarship committee.

All applicants will be notified by May 30, 2022. Not all applicants will be selected as recipients. The award is not renewable; however, you may reapply to the program if you continue to meet the eligibility criteria.

All award checks will be issued by The Association of Women Contractors. All recipients are encouraged to attend the award ceremony and assist during our golf fundraising event. This year the event is June 17, 2022, at Bunker Hills Golf Course in Coon Rapids, MN.

Apprenticeship Scholarship is made payable to the recipient directly in two payments. Apprenticeship recipients will receive 50% of their scholarship at Scholarship Award Ceremony or via mail. The remaining 50% will be sent to recipient December 30, 2022, provided recipient remains in the apprentice program.
