Quality Bicycle Products is pleased to announce the 2019 winners of the Women’s Bike Mechanic Scholarship. Each of the 32 scholarship recipients will attend a two-week Professional Repair and Shop Operations class at United Bicycle Institute (UBI), in Ashland, Oregon thanks to support from QBP and sponsors SRAM, Park Tool, UBI, DT Swiss, Problem Solvers, SPANK, MAXXIS, DERO Bike Racks, and WTB. 

The winners were selected from nearly 300 qualified applicants because of their passion for increasing ridership among underrepresented groups and their demonstrated commitment to the projects they’re currently working on. The scholarship covers the winners’ tuition and lodging, plus a stipend to help defray the personal expenses of travel and meals.  

The time spent at UBI will help each recipient build a solid foundation of technical knowledge to strengthen their bike industry career while also helping to grow the network of talented mechanics. 

Congratulations to these 2019 scholarship recipients.
