NFPA in Need of Scholarship Reviewers

Programs like the Fluid Power Scholarship Program 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.


NFPA is in need of volunteers for the coming months in support of several workforce programs. This spring, reviewers are needed to help review scholarship applications for the Fluid Power Scholarship program. Reviewers should expect to review applications in April-May 2022 but are encouraged to sign up for this opportunity early. Total time commitment is approximately 3-5 hours. Please reach out to Amy Zignego at azignego@nfpa.com with questions or to participate.

Reviewers will also be needed to help review applications for the Robotics Challenge Scholarship. Reviewers should expect to review applications and help with phone interviews in May-June 2022 but are again encouraged to sign up for this opportunity early. Total time commitment is approximately 3-5 hours. Please reach out to Mary Pluta at mpluta@nfpa.com with questions or to participate.
