Back on the Road Grant
We are so thankful for Superintendent Wood’s Back on the Road Grant! SkillsUSA Georgia was given more than $230,000 to give back directly to our chapters! Every chapter who had submitted membership by April 10th for the 2021-2022 school year will receive a $1,000 credit towards your SkillsUSA Georgia account. Click here to view if your chapter is on the list of recipients. The one thousand dollars can be applied to pay for membership dues and/or state sponsored conference fees. All credits must be used by March 15th.
Each chapter is responsible for indicating if and how much of your grant you would like to be applied to membership dues or conference fees. Please follow the below directions to apply your grant monies.
To use your funds for membership fees, chapters must complete Student Membership Form. SkillsUSA Georgia can only apply credits to invoices of the exact students who you wish to apply your credit to. Chapters cannot submit an invoice for partial payment.
