    Women's Bike Mechanic Scholarships available now

    Hey all, just saw this on QBP share if you know anyone who is interested

    Women's Bike Mechanic Scholarship

    SRAM, Liv, QBP, United Bicycle Institute (UBI), Pedro’s and Park Tool have joined together to offer ten scholarships for women bike mechanics to attend UBI. This scholarship is dedicated to getting more women on bikes and supporting the development of female mechanics. This opportunity is open to aspiring or experienced bike mechanics and women that would like to increase their technical knowledge to further their career in the bike industry. This scholarship has two primary goals:

    To grow the number of talented women working in the bike industry
    To grow female ridership

    Scholarship recipients will be chosen based on their potential to do both of these things.

    This scholarship will cover the 2-week Professional Shop Repair and Operations class. Additional support is provided by Nuu-Muu and the Outdoor Industries Women's Coalition (OIWC).

    This open call for applications begins October 20 and will close Nov 15. Scholarship winners will be notified via email by December 19.
