We work smart and hard.


Skilled workers make civilized life possible!

That’s why we created the Work Ethic Scholarship Program.

Each year, we look for the next generation of aspiring workers who will work smart and hard.  The Work Ethic Scholarship Program doesn’t focus on test scores, grades, or grammar.  It’s about the people who share our values and understand the importance of work ethic, personal responsibility, delayed gratification, and a positive attitude.

The 2020 Work Ethic Scholarship Program will open soon, but you can click on the link below to view the full list of 2019 Work Ethic Scholarship Recipients!

Be ready to apply soon.

There'll be hoops to jump through. The short version is, you'll have to:

  • Enroll in an approved program.
  • Sign The S.W.E.A.T. Pledge.
  • Send at least 2 references from bosses/teachers.
  • Answer 4 questions.
  • Make a short video.
  • Verify school costs.
  • Provide high school/college transcript.
  • Submit financial info.

Fair warning: the Work Ethic Scholarship Program is not for everyone.  But if you’re someone who shows up early, stays late, and busts your ass day in and day out, get ready to apply next time.



Gamez Gets It!

Michael Gamez epitomizes work ethic. He knows that good things don’t happen by accident. You have to do the work to get the reward, and Michael worked hard to become an automotive master tech. Where did Michael get his strong work ethic? You might say it runs in the family.

Special thanks to our 2019 scholarship sponsors for their support!
