The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors – National Association Educational Foundation has a total of $105,000 in apprenticeship scholarships for any plumbing and HVACR apprentice, plus college students who are pursuing studies related in the industry.
The deadline to apply is May 1 for the opportunity at 44 different awards worth $1,000 to $5,000 each.
In addition to answering some questions about why they want to be in this industry, candidates will need a scanned copy of apprentice school grades, a letter of recommendation from instructor and a letter of recommendation from a PHCC business owner.
Many contractors do not push their apprentices to apply because the company already pays for their training. We still want your apprentices to apply! Why?
Each scholarship won will help to offset those training costs for the company, and allow companies to train more workers for the industry. Up to four of your top apprentices can apply to win one of our scholarships, with each win saving your company training costs.
Together, the foundation and the PHCC National Auxiliary will award more than $130,000 in scholarships in 2018.
This year’s awards are possible because of the generous donations made by PHCC members and annual sponsorships from A.O. Smith Water Heaters, Bradford White Corp., Delta Faucet Company, RIDGID, State Water Heaters, PHCC Past National Officers, PHCC of Texas Auxiliary, PHCC of Mass. Auxiliary, S. Jersey Mechanical Contractors Association, the McGlame-Wordell Scholarship Committee, Gerry Kennedy and Anne Williams.
