Portland’s United Bicycle Institute Offers Scholarships for Women
Monday, October 27, 2014
In partnership with bike industry leaders SRAM, Liv, QBP, Pedro’s and Park Tool, United Bicycle Institute (UBI) will offer ten scholarships for women bike mechanics to attend UBI.
Oriented toward getting more women on bikes and supporting the development of female mechanics, this opportunity is open to aspiring or experienced bike mechanics and women who would like to increase their technical knowledge to further a career in the bike industry.
Scholarship recipients will be chosen based on their potential to grow the number of women working in the bike industry and increase female ridership.
This scholarship enables enrollment in the two-week Professional Shop Repair and Operations class (normally a $1950 tuition) at either the Portland or Ashland UBI campus. Scholarship recipients must be currently employed at a bike shop.
The application period is now open and will close November 15. Scholarship winners will be notified via email by December 19.
