The 2018 Scholarship Deadline is April 1, 2018!
In 2017, the National Tooling and Machining Foundation awarded $2,000 scholarships to 13 students across the country, for a total of $26,000. $2,000 makes an impact for students. These scholarships can mean the difference between a student taking classes or dropping out for a semester – or for good.
We need your help getting more qualified applicants for the Brock Babb and Edwin Vobeda Scholarships for 2018. Do you know a deserving student in your shop, your community, your Chapter, NRL Teams or your family that is pursuing their education in manufacturing?
Students that apply for either scholarship must have a letter of recommendation from an NTMA member in good standing. Please share the scholarship information below with your employees, interns, co-ops, and others in your community to help connect people with financial assistance for their educational pursuits in the machining, tool and die, and other related industries.
