NFPA Fluid Power Scholarship Application Available on January 1

Programs like the Fluid Power Scholarships are made possible in part by the generous support of industry volunteers as well as NFPA Education and Technology Foundation and Pascal Society donors. Support these efforts by making a donation.


The NFPA Education and Technology Foundation will begin accepting applications on January 1, 2021 for  $2,000 scholarships available to students pursuing fluid power technology fields of study. Twelve of these scholarships are available this year. The deadline to apply is March 18, 2021.

A minimum 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale, 500-word essay, and two letters of recommendation are required from each applicant. The Foundation’s goal is to help individuals enrolled in high schools, technical colleges, and universities pursue their interests in fluid power.
