FMA Foundation - College Scholarships
Since 1990, the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association Foundation has awarded scholarships annually to students in courses of study that may lead to careers in manufacturing. The scholarships are a member benefit of FMA and its technology affiliate, the Tube & Pipe Association, International (TPA)and the Outside Processors Council (OPC). Because manufacturing engineers, management, and skilled tradespeople are such an important part of the work force, the FMA Foundation's board of directors seeks to encourage talented students to pursue careers in manufacturing fields.
