“We are pleased to award scholarships to these deserving students and are happy to assist them in reaching their academic goals,” said Edward Youdell, president of NBT. “They recognize that skilled manufacturing careers can be rewarding financially and fulfilling personally. The knowledge and skills they obtain will help them be more competitive in the current job market.

“The most difficult jobs to fill today are those in the skilled trades and engineering,” added Youdell. “With majors in machine tool technology, structural and pipe welding, mechanical engineering, welding and metal fabrication, and precision machining technology, these students will be prepared for the skilled labor openings that American manufacturers must fill.”

Eligible applicants are required to be full-time students meeting a specified minimum GPA and enrolled in a manufacturing-related course of study, engineering curriculum, or a trade or technical program leading to a career in manufacturing. Students are responsible for submitting academic records and a manufacturing-related program description with each application.

In addition to the scholarship, each winner will receive a complimentary one-year FMA student membership (valued at $25), and from NBT’s industry partner SolidWorks Corporation, a 365-day license to its Student Design Kit CAD software package.

Since 1990, FMA’s foundation, NBT, has awarded more than 530 scholarships valued at almost $1.1 million to students enrolled in courses of study that will lead to careers in manufacturing. Scholarships are awarded twice each year for the fall and spring semesters. The application is open from July 1-Sept. 30 for spring awards and Jan. 1-March 31 for fall awards.
