NFPA Seeks to Diversify Scholarship Applicants

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 provides $2,000 Fluid Power Scholarships to help students enrolled in high schools, technical colleges and university engineering schools pursue their interests in fluid power. Since the inception of the program in 2017, 43 students have been awarded the scholarship to study fluid power at technical colleges and universities across the country.

NFPA recognizes the importance and need to diversify the applicant pool, especially for students living in underserved communities. For NFPA to reach those students, we need to identify organizations that are interested in promoting the scholarship to these communities. This could be a related engineering organization, local community organization, etc.

If you or you someone at your company knows of an organization(s) that may be interested in promoting our scholarship to their students, please contact Amy Zignego at azignego@nfpa.com.
