How to land a job and how to win scholarships remain top queries to me by everyone from Quora answer seekers to parents to mid-career professionals.

Unlike college scholarships, industry scholarships are awarded year-round. However, like college scholarships, industry applicants should observe deadlines and submit complete packages. The rewards have multiple benefits for those who can land scholarships for career advancements and also receive a place in line for promotions.

Also, be sure to check with your current employer to learn of free or scholarship-based professional development opportunities.

Here are a few industry scholarship opportunities:

  • A new application was launched the second week of July. Application deadlines are January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1.
  • This is a great scholarship for student employees of the music association’s member companies. Application process closes in August. The Impact Maker scholarships have three scholarship deadlines with an immediate one due July 15. I love this award because it is open to college students pursuing any industry.

  • You have to live in Texas and have an interest as undergraduate or adult skills (returning to workforce) in the auto industry. NASCAR is a sponsor. Several types of scholarships are available including housing assistance.

Every industry is willing to offer a helping hand for professional development. It takes some work, yet you will be rewarded for the effort to help yourself financially to progress in your chosen fields.

First cousins Mark Owen and Ann Lineve Wead (it is protocol to use the maiden names of females in genealogy searches) are responsible for writing this blog. Although Ann has been involved in genealogy research while searching for certain ancestors since the age of 10, the cousins began deeper research of their families during the COVID-19 Pandemic Year of 2020. Devoting as much as 6 hours some evenings to the methodical training and research of genealogy, the cousins completed the year 2020 by earning genealogy certificates.
