2012-13 grainger tools for tomorrow scholarship

Since 2006, the Grainger Tools for Tomorrow Scholarship program has helped technical education students across the country realize their educational goals. This scholarship recognizes outstanding students with a $2,000 scholarship and customized Westward toolkit upon successful completion of the student’s technical education program.

Applicants must be United States citizens or legal residents at select community colleges in which they are studying electronic systems, heating/air conditioning, plumbing, pneumatics, welding, automotive, construction, facilities maintenance or other industrial trades.

Beginning in Fall of 2010, a limited number of scholarships will be set aside specifically for students who have served in the military. These scholarships are available to veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard).

All students must be enrolled for at least 12 course credit hours per semester. The scholarship is not transferable to another institution. The scholarship monies must also be used by the student within 24 months.

All applicants must provide the following:

  • One letter of recommendation from a professor, teacher, advisor or military first line supervisor.
  • A list of clubs, activities, accomplishments, leadership roles held and years involved, including those related to their field of study or military job experience.
  • An essay of 200-300 words on why the student chose to study technical education, how their achievements and/or leadership roles have helped them grow individually and their future goals within the technical field.
  • GPA must be 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale.
  • Grainger employees and their immediate family members are not eligible to apply.
