If you are chosen for the scholarship, the program will pay to have you trained and then help get you settled into your new position.

Burleson Works, a program of the Burleson Opportunity Fund and the Burleson Economic Development Corporation, aims to fill the skills gap in Burleson’s labor market through partnerships with local and regional schools.

Scholarships will be provided to applicants based on the specific needs of the partners. Local companies will have an opportunity to interview the applicants before the scholarship is awarded. If selected, the applicant will begin training through one of the program’s educational partners. Educational partners include Hill College, Tarrant County College, Texas State Technical College and the University of Texas at Arlington. Once the courses are complete, the scholarship recipient will know exactly where they will be employed at a company here in Burleson.
Special thanks to all of the program sponsors.
