- Scholarship Description
Scholarships will be awarded based on a 500-word essay telling our selection committee: "Why manufacturing is the right career path for me and how I plan to make a difference in a manufacturing environment." Essays should include a statement explaining experience, related skills, or exposure to the manufacturing industry, such as participation in events such as First Robotics, mechanical manufacturing work experience, Manufacturing Week events or videos, MiCareerQuest, or other real-life exposure to manufacturing.
Students must be a resident of Kent, Ottawa, Allegan, Barry, Ionia, Montcalm, or Muskegon county and plan to attend a post-secondary educational institution in Michigan or provide a strong statement of connection to West Michigan on their application. Essays will be reviewed by the selection committee and used to help identify finalists. Finalists will be interviewed (virtually or in-person) by members of the scholarship selection committee before determining recipients.
