| July 29, 2014

WACO, Texas – The Dwyer Group is accepting applications now through September 30th for the next round of Women in the Trades scholarships.


Interested candidates can apply for a $1,500 scholarship to be used at a trade or technical school for any of seven specialties including HVAC, plumbing, electrical repair, glass repair and replacement, appliance repair, restoration or landscaping.


The scholarships are available to women working towards a career in the trades, to students studying for a career in the trades, or to front-line female employees at franchise locations for any of The Dwyer Group service brands.
The Women in the Trades (WITT) initiative was established in 2012 by Dina Dwyer-Owens, Executive Chairwoman of The Dwyer Group, to offer women the opportunity to break professional boundaries and pursue life-long goals across the service trades with the help of the WITT scholarship program. The WITT initiative is focused on educating and promoting the hiring of women for traditionally male-dominated roles in the trades industry. WITT scholarships are awarded two times a year, in the spring and fall.


“We are excited to open the doors to this industry and offer women interested in a trade profession the opportunity to further their expertise and experience,” said Dwyer-Owens.


The WITT scholarship is open to women 18 and older interested in pursuing a career in the trades and covers tuition, books, travel and/or fees. Funds can be applied to any accredited trade or technical school in the United States or Canada.


Candidates will be evaluated based upon financial needs, previous work experience and their passion for their chosen industry. For more information and to apply click here or email WITT@dwyergroup.com.
