Professional Trades Scholarship

Go to Application

J. Ranck Electric, Inc. (JRE) has become the company it is today through the hard work of many professional skilled tradespeople from electricians to laborers and operators. Michigan is facing a shortage of professional skilled tradespeople over the next ten years. As a result of this, our office and field team have been making a concerted effort to reach as many people as possible to show them how rewarding and successful careers in the professional trades can be. To further aid this effort, we are offering five $500 scholarships available to those entering a construction-based skilled trades education/training program. Preference will be given to those entering the electrical field and relatives of JRE employees.


Scholarship awards will be available for qualified educational expenses (training program fees, tuition, books, and tools) and paid directly to the student.

Applications must be received no later than December 31, 2019.
