The MPMA’s Education Foundation is offering scholarships in amounts ranging from $500-$1,000 to help motivated students with an interest in manufacturing get the training they need to become successful in the field. Applications must be submitted by April 15, and can be downloaded at www.mpma.com/page/educationfoundation.
What is the foundation?
The Education Foundation was formed to address the shortage of people entering the manufacturing field by supporting students, school technical programs, and educational institutions. The foundation:
• Awards scholarships to students. Last year $8,500 worth of scholarships was awarded to students enrolled in manufacturing programs at Pine County Technical College, Alexandria Technical and Community College, South Central College, Bemidji State University, University of North Dakota, Central Lakes College, and South Central Technical College.
• Supports the institutions that are responsible for training students. The foundation donates money to schools to help them finance the purchase of much-needed new equipment and software. Providing them with the necessary tools for properly educating our youth ensures that new employees are ready and prepared for their careers in manufacturing.
