AMVETS Generation T Scholarships
There are currently 500,000 job openings in the skilled trades industry and that number is projected to increase to three million by 2028.
Take a listen as John, a graduate from Dyer, shares his story of transition into a new career and the benefits of the training he received with his AMVETS scholarship.
Vocational training can lead to fulfilling jobs with competitive pay in a fraction of the time and cost of a traditional four-year university.
Through this partnership, AMVETS aims to fulfill Generation Tâ€™s vision.
Generation T is on a mission to change peopleâ€™s lives. To show them that â€œwork doesnâ€™t have to be a grind. To show them benefits go way beyond healthcare and 401k. To show them you can enjoy what you do, buy a house, take vacations, and support a family. To give them hope, happiness, and the satisfaction of a job well done.â€
Just as our veterans have protected and sacrificed for this country, the skilled trades have built and sustained this country. Merging these two American pillars is mission critical.
With the support of Loweâ€™s Company Inc. and WD-40 Company. AMVETS is offering scholarships of up to $5,000 to those who are enrolled in an eligible program. Applications for Spring will be accepted from February 22nd through April 30th, 2022. Fall applications will be accepted from July 19th through September 24th, 2022.
