Rheem Apprenticeship Grants Open

Applications for the 2014 Rheem Apprentice Plumber Grants close soon!


There are 25 grants of $1000 each on offer to apprentice plumbers most in need of financial assistance to help them pursue their plumbing career.

Apprentices can nominate themselves, or their employer can nominate on their behalf.

You can enter online by completing the online application form on the Rheem website


Alternatively you can download the form from the Rheem website and either post, email or fax it (details are on the application form).


Rheem Australia CEO Matt Sexton said “It’s obvious that there’s a huge need for financial support amongst apprentice plumbers. Over the past couple of years we’ve heard some amazing and compelling stories about apprentices – both young and mature age – who have made considerable financial and personal sacrifices to enter the trade and further their careers.”


There are no restrictions on the grants, with successful applicants able to decide how and when they use the money, be it for tools, education, bills or fuel to get to and from work.


Applications close on Sunday 31 August 2014 and the successful applicants will be announced on Tuesday 30 September 2014.


Recipients of the 2012 and 2013 Rheem Apprentice Plumber Grants are not eligible to enter.
