Scholarships Available to Empower Next Generation of Lineworkers

PHOENIX – Are you looking for a meaningful and action-packed career where you can soar to new heights? Arizona Public Service (APS) and Earn to Learn are looking for outstanding candidates to apply for scholarships for the Electric Utility Lineworker Certificate program at Yavapai Community College.

The one-semester classes will start in Fall 2024. A second cohort will begin in Spring 2025. Each scholarship offers tuition assistance for the lineworker program, which prepares students for a pre-apprentice position with utility companies like APS. 

In 2019, APS created the APS Lineworker Scholarship program to improve access to post-secondary education while creating a pathway to career opportunities. A lineworker is indispensable in an essential industry with strong growth opportunities and competitive pay and benefits. This scholarship program is one way to attract more people to the field and to date, has introduced more than 300 people to careers in energy through targeted outreach and pre-apprentice program information sessions.

The scholarship application is open through April 30, 2024. Candidates will be selected based on financial need, understanding of the lineworker career field and additional eligibility requirements. To learn more or apply, visit earntolearn.org/aps-lineworker.org.
