Seminole State College of Florida is partnering with W.W. Grainger to offer two $2,000 scholarships for qualified veterans.

The scholarships, part of the Grainger Tools for Tomorrow program, are available for honorably discharged veterans who are currently enrolled in a qualified technical education program at Seminole State. Qualified programs include Associate in Science or certification in: electronic systems, heating/air conditioning, plumbing, pneumatics, welding, automotive, construction, facilities maintenance or other industrial trade.

Applicants must be currently enrolled in at least 12 hours of classes this semester and have a 3.0 GPA or higher. Applicants who were not previously enrolled will be required to provide a military record.

All applicants must provide the following:

  • 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 students 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.

The winning students will also receive toolkits upon graduation.
