Rogers County is experiencing lower-than-average unemployment. With a rate of just 2.8 percent, several high-wage positions in the manufacturing, education, and healthcare sectors remain unfilled. 

To help ensure the region's robust talent pipeline, Claremore Economic Development, in conjunction with the City of Claremore and Rogers County, announced a new workforce training initiative in 2023 to aid in staff in-demand occupations. Now in its second funding cycle, the Rogers County Technical Training Scholarships allows Rogers County residents to apply for a scholarship to attend an approved technical program in Healthcare, Manufacturing, Education, Construction, Information Technology, and Business at no cost.

Applications must be current a Rogers County resident and have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic (examples include, increased household expenses, illness, caring for someone who was ill, loss of time or income from work, and remote schooling).


Please note, those students who received first-round funding are not eligible to receive a second scholarship. Other programs are available but must be pre-approved by the scholarship committee prior to acceptance into the program. If you have another desired training program in mind, please ask if it is possible to attend.


More than $100,000 will be distributed to program applicants and remain open until reserves are exhausted. Rogers County residents who meet the low-to-moderate income guidelines established by HUD (see below) will be given priority acceptance. However, any interested Rogers County resident is encouraged to apply! Funds will be allocated until depleted.
