Middy's 2020 Scholarship

Middy’s 2020 Scholarship Program Launches July 6th

Now in its 12th year, our Scholarship Program has awarded over $1 million worth of industry training.

Amid a global pandemic, never has it been more important to focus on skills development to keep pace with the opportunities that our ever-changing world serves up. And so, despite heading into the most uncertain times ever known by our industry we considered it essential to continue with our Middy’s Scholarship program. We are enormously proud that our Scholarship program, now in its 12th year, has delivered over $1m worth of training to our industry.

Since 2009, Middy’s has helped 129 electrical contractors and apprentices to be at the forefront of our industry with training funded by the Middy’s Scholarship Program.

One of last year's Gold Scholarship winners, Kylie Slade from Livewire Electrical & Design, found the Scholarship award invaluable to obtain further training to help drive and grow her family business with her two daughters.

The program is open to all A grade electrical contractors, data installers (with ACMA open cabling accreditation) and 4th year electrical apprentices around Australia. You can nominate yourself or, if you are a business owner, you can nominate an eligible applicant working within your business.

The Scholarship Program provides the funds for contractors to choose recognised training or skill enhancement courses nationwide to deliver the skill sets and competitive edge needed to succeed in today’s challenging environment and give their career an edge. A total of $100,000 will be awarded across 7 Gold and 6 Silver Scholarships.

With the freedom of allowing contractors to select and customise their own industry courses, no matter where you are in Australia from Hobart to Darwin and everywhere in between, you’ll be able to choose the industry courses and qualifications that are convenient to you.
