Manufacturing Camp Grant Awards
Since 2003, FMA’s foundation, Nuts, Bolts & Thingamajigs, has awarded grants annually to trade schools and community or technical colleges capable of hosting a summer manufacturing camp program for girls and/or boys ages 12-16. Summer camps have been a successful way of introducing middle- and high-school students to the fascinating, high-tech career choices available to them in today’s automated manufacturing industry.
The following tiered-grant award structure applies:
First-year award: $2,500
Second-year award: $1,500
Third-year award: $ 1,000
Previous camp grant award winners FROM ANY YEAR are eligible to apply at the second-year award level. After a third-year award is received, applicants will be eligible to apply as an affiliate camp and continue to receive marketing and program support materials.
