We told you a few weeks ago about Gear Up powered by STIHL, a new program meant to support colleges with arboriculture, forestry and horticulture programs by providing them with the funds needed to purchase materials imperative to proper training – notably, the tools, equipment and PPE that accompanies a tree care education.
If you haven’t completed your application, now’s your chance! This opportunity ends next week on October 5, 2018. Don’t wait – apply now!
Here’s a reminder of what’s at stake:
What is Gear Up? This program provides FIVE colleges with $5,000 to be used towards the purchase of new STIHL equipment, as well as a STIHL training session to supplement the new gear.
Who qualifies: Colleges with arboriculture, horticulture, urban forestry and other related programs.
How to apply: Visit outsidecareers.org/gearup to complete the online application and tell us how your program would benefit from new equipment.
Deadline: Applications are due October 5, 2018.
