One Scholarship, in the amount of $5,000, will be awarded annually to an employee at a USCTI member company or a student nominated by a USCTI member. The Scholarship will be based on academic performance, written essay, and referral from the USCTI member company and/or school. Scholarship funds will be transferred directly to the institution and applied to cover costs of the Scholarship recipient’s courses, tuition, fees, books, etc. Applications run from the Fall until the deadline.
Eligible Scholarship recipients are high school seniors who will enter a college or a vocational school program in the fall; who are already enrolled in a program; or an employee of a USCTI member company seeking additional training. Family members of a member of the USCTI Scholarship Committee or the USCTI Board of Directors are not eligible. A Scholarship recipient must stay enrolled and attend classes through the academic year, and receive passing grades. Failure to do so may result in loss of the Scholarship and a requirement to pay back the Scholarship. To ensure compliance with this requirement, the scholarship recipient must provide USCTI Staff with a certified copy of his or her transcript as soon as possible after each grading cycle.
