CNCMachines.net has announced it is accepting applications for a new $2,000 scholarship. The award is for students enrolled in a CNC machinist, operations, engineering, or manufacturing certificate or degree program. As part of the award process, the scholarship recipient's school will also benefit from a $500 donation made to their machining or manufacturing department to help purchase or upgrade of tools or supplies.

According to The Skills Gap in Manufacturing Report by Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute, seven out of 10 manufacturing executives reported shortages of workers with adequate technology, computer and technical training skills. Of the executives they interviewed for the report, 72 percent agreed that involvement with local schools and community colleges is effective in combating that trend.

To be considered, applicants must submit an essay of 500-1,000 words detailing three innovative ways the industry can effectively increase the number of young professionals seeking careers in manufacturing. Alternately, video submissions of one to three minutes are also accepted.

The application deadline for this scholarship is January 1, 2019 and the winner will be selected on January 22, 2019. Submission details and the scholarship application can be found here.
