Birkeys Case IH Scholarship Opportunity

My name is Travis McClure and I am the Education and Recruiting Coordinator for Birkeys Farm Stores. We are currently accepting scholarship applications for the Case IH/New Holland technician training program through Parkland College. Birkeys and Case IH have partnered with Parkland College to create a program designed specifically for students pursuing a career as an agriculture or construction diesel technician. In addition to receiving top training and education through Parkland College, Birkeys is offering $4000.00 tuition assistance for the duration of the program, paid internships at the dealer, paid uniforms, and a $6000 Snap-On tool box and tools. Our graduates start out as technicians and have the opportunity to move into other roles at the dealership. Several have become service managers, parts managers, sales and precision agriculture representatives, and even administration. I strongly encourage any of your students interested in diesel mechanics to read the attached material and contact me at I look forward to hearing from you and your students to answer any questions about the Case IH/New Holland Program and the scholarship opportunities through Birkeys Farm Store.

Thank you,
