The mikeroweWORKS Foundation (MRW) and Tulsa Welding School (TWS) partnered to offer scholarships and are pleased to announce the creation of the MRW/TWS Scholarship Program for high school seniors at TWS's campuses in Tulsa, Okla., and Jacksonville, Fla.

A total of 49 full-tuition paid scholarships will be offered, with a collective value of $800,000, across its campuses in Tulsa and Jacksonville
The Refrigeration School (RSI) in Phoenix, Ariz., Mary Kelly, CEO of TWS said, "Our country was built by skilled trade workers. Unfortunately, there has been a push in the last two decades to steer our children into four-year college programs, regardless of their own individual skills sets. The result is that we have a huge shortage of skilled trade workers and are scrambling to fill all these open positions. These scholarships will help us encourage those students who have the ability and the work ethic to succeed in fields of study like welding, pipefitting and “shipfitting."

Last month, Mike Rowe CEO of MRW announced that signing The S.W.E.A.T. (Skills & Work Ethic Aren't Taboo) pledge would be a condition of all MRW scholarships.
