Available Sponsorship Options

The NFPA Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge is underway and we are actively expanding this program to include more students from more universities. Contributing sponsors provide teams with the needed technology to efficiently participate in the competition all year long or help to create a space during the final competition event for emerging engineers to network with fluid power representatives and be hired into our industry.

Immediate need, yearlong recognition
