The Handy Scholarship

The Handy Scholarship



Since its inception, Handy has sought to make the world a better place by using technology to connect customers in need of home services with talented professionals ready to provide them. Regardless of whether a customer needs a maid service, a cleaning service, a furniture assembly, or a TV mounting, we want to connect them with the right pro for the job. As we continue to march toward our goal of "Every service, every home" we’ve created new economic opportunities for the thousands of housekeeping and handyman professionals who use our platform and provided immeasurable help and convenience to the customers who’ve booked our services.

Now, we’d like to provide an opportunity to help out a bright, passionate, and ambitious student who is also working to improve the world in their own way. That is why we created the Handy Scholarship. 

The winner will receive a $1,000 academic scholarship grant.


Any student currently enrolled in high school, college, university or trade school is eligible to apply for the Handy Scholarship.
