2016 Science Scholarship

The National Machinery Foundation has been providing financial assistance to students for more than 60 years through various scholarship and citizenship programs. The board of trustees of the foundation recognizes that with increased costs of tuition, greater incentives are needed to encourage area students to pursue advanced degrees needed in the manufacturing industry. It is well known that there is a need in the area for workers with training in the engineering sciences and technology.
