I blog often about the skilled workforce dilemma and training the nation’s young people. ThomasNet must agree with me, for they just launched a North American Manufacturing Scholarship program. Up to 30 graduating high school seniors with an interest in manufacturing careers will each receive a $1,000 scholarship to pursue studies at a two-year or four-year college, or a vocational-technical school.
“For more than a century, we’ve supported American manufacturing by connecting buyers and suppliers,” says Eileen Markowitz, president of ThomasNet. “We hope to have parents, educators and the manufacturing community join us in encouraging young students to transform their ingenuity and passion into a career in this exciting industry. With the launch of ThomasNet’s first North American Manufacturing Scholarship Program, we will recognize those star performers who have already demonstrated achievement in their schools and communities, and who plan to bring their skills and talents to this important industry.”
To be eligible for the ThomasNet North American Manufacturing Scholarships, applicants must be graduating U.S. high school seniors or Canadian secondary students who plan to major in engineering, supply chain management/business operations, or learn a skilled trade.blog comments powered by Disqus
