The program can be at a college or a trade school anywhere in the United States or Canada.

Empowering dreams

In the pursuit of academic excellence and fostering the dreams of aspiring scholars, Boom and Bucket proudly introduce their much-anticipated 2024 Student Scholarship Program. At the heart of this initiative lies a commitment to inclusivity, and it is specifically designed to benefit the dynamic cohort of bucket scholarship applicants.

As part of a broader scholarship initiative, Boom and Bucket aim to systematically bridge the financial gap that often hinders educational pursuits. This initiative stands as a testament to the organization’s dedication to creating an environment where every enrolled student has equal access to educational resources, regardless of financial constraints.

In 2024, the Boom and Bucket’s Student Scholarship Program became a transformative force, embodying the spirit of empowerment and providing a platform for ambitious students to flourish. As the application term approaches, the program promises not only financial support but a pathway to a brighter future, where education becomes a catalyst for personal and societal growth.

How to apply

To apply, students must write a 500+ word essay or record a 2-minute video explaining who you are and what makes them excited about the heavy equipment space.

In 2023, we spotted similar issues in some scholarship submissions. Here are tips to strengthen your application:

  • Start by including a title and name in your application, along with the subject or field you are currently studying.
  • Craft your essay specifically for this scholarship. Show us your enthusiasm for the heavy equipment industry – remember, passion is key.
  • Ensure your essay is well-structured with appropriate paragraphs and formatting. Use a word processor for your essay and refrain from submitting screenshots from note-taking apps or images of handwritten notes.
  • If you feel you can express yourself better verbally, consider submitting a YouTube video instead. We noticed a lack of video submissions this year and would love to see more in the future.
  • Finally, please submit your application in PDF format to ensure compatibility and ease of reading.
