National Apprenticeship Week

This year's National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) is Nov. 14-20. This national celebration established by the U.S. Department of Labor brings together business leaders, career seekers, labor, apprentices, educational institutions and others to showcase the positive impact apprenticeship programs have on addressing the skills gap and preparing the American workforce for the jobs of today and tomorrow. Join the celebration by hosting an event -- such as an apprenticeship graduation, business open house, high school career fair, skills competition or industry roundtable -- or submit a proclamation supporting NAW and apprenticeship. Learn more about NAW.
 

Share Your Champions

The SkillsUSA Champions digital hub provides new content weekly, from inspiring features to “Spotlight” stories about the great work chapters and partners are doing. To get a SkillsUSA member’s story considered for publication on the site (even if that story is yours), use our Submit a Story online form.
 

SkillsUSA Scholarships Benefit Students

One of the greatest benefits of student membership in SkillsUSA is the opportunity to earn educational scholarships. Some scholarships are based on merit, while others are based on financial need. These are competitive opportunities, so be sure to carefully review the scholarship requirements. If selected, students must complete a SkillsUSA scholarship acceptance form and payment is sent directly to the educational institution to be applied toward the recipient’s tuition bill. To earn a scholarship, students must be current registered SkillsUSA members and have paid both state and national membership dues for this school year. Check out the SkillsUSA scholarships and grants here. New this year, students can apply for most scholarships via a single online application.
