Number of scholarships to award
Founded in Austin, Texas by Adam Lawrence, Samir Shah and Aaron Kline, Boom & Bucket is a marketplace to buy and sell used heavy equipment. After raising a $5.5 million seed round, the company quickly grew to over 20 employees and has been featured in TechCrunch.
Their CEO put himself in the C-suite managing a team of over 200 people at his last company. Before that, he built and sold a startup in under 3 years. This all started with an education, which is why Boom & Bucket is proud to offer a scholarship. They hope to help in giving everyone the opportunity to a quality education, regardless of financial standing.
Boom & Bucket is offering a scholarship of $1,000 to be awarded each year to a student pursuing a heavy machinery themed program.
To apply, students must write a 500+ word essay or record a 2-minute video explaining who you are and what makes you excited about the heavy equipment space.
Please submit your application by 12:00PM central time on March 31st of each calendar year. Winners will be chosen by April 15th. The winning scholarship will be paid directly to the school as a tuition payment.
