There is a widening skills gap, yet high demand for highly-skilled and well-trained workers among various trades. However, a recent BigRentz survey revealed there is an inaccurate view of trade programs and the earning potential of a skilled trade.
As an advocate of vocational education and to promote the advantages of a skilled trade, BigRentz is pleased to offer $10,000 in scholarships to students pursuing a career in skilled trades.

BigRentz will award $5,000 to two students to help cover educational expenses for a student currently pursuing (or who is planning to pursue) vocational training. Below you will learn how to enter the contest as well as the scholarship rules.
