Columbus, Ohio – My Service Depot (maker of the award-winning field service management software Smart Service) is very proud to announce a brand new scholarship opportunity for students attending (or planning to attend) a college, university, or trade school in 2017 to pursue a career in a field service industry or skilled trade. The Smart Service Scholarship exclusively targets these students, focusing on the future HVAC, plumbing, electrician, construction, fire protection, and landscaping professionals of the world.
At My Service Depot, we feel that too much effort is spent directing young men and women to pursue traditional four year colleges and liberal arts degrees when those degrees don’t necessarily translate into good jobs for graduating students. Meanwhile, many field service occupations that offer intellectually stimulating and well-paying work remain understaffed.
Another unique feature of this scholarship is the method of participation. Instead of the usual written essay, The Smart Service Scholarship Fund encourages applicants to submit a video entry. This is done to both increase the appeal of the opportunity and to emphasize traits (affability, presentation) we feel will greatly serve aspiring field service professionals in their chosen field.
The scholarship is open to anyone who has graduated high school in the last 15 years with a GPA of at least 2.5. Those wishing to apply can find the details and application form on the scholarship page on the Smart Service website. Moving forward, the scholarship will be offered on a biannual basis.
