NFPA Members Invited to Connect with University Students Through Fluid Power Clubs

NFPA has been renewing applications and signing up new schools to support Fluid Power Clubs on university campuses. The goal of this initiative is to get younger students introduced to and interested in fluid power, support club activities, and connect students to industry professionals to learn about careers in fluid power.

So far, these universities have active clubs on their campuses this year:

  1. Iowa State University
  2. Milwaukee School of Engineering
  3. Murray State University
  4. North Carolina A&T State University
  5. Northern Illinois University
  6. Ohio University
  7. Purdue Northwest
  8. Purdue University
  9. South Dakota State University
  10. University of Alabama at Birmingham
  11. University of Cincinnati
  12. West Virginia University Institute of Technology
  13. Western Michigan University

NFPA is still accepting applications. If you know of a university in your community that would benefit from up to $2,000 in stipend funding, industry access, and other resources, they can apply here.

Universities like these are always looking for industry representatives to speak to their students to guide them as they work on technical projects. There are many opportunities for NFPA members to get connected to local students. To get engaged with any of these universities, please contact Stephanie Scaccianoce sscaccianoce@nfpa.com
