Twenty-nine students seeking careers in manufacturing earned $5,000, $2,500, $2,000, or $500 toward their college or trade school education from Nuts, Bolts & Thingamajigs (NBT), The Foundation of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, Intl. (FMA), and SolidWorks Corp.

NBT and SolidWorks awarded 11 traditional scholarships to college- or trade school-bound high school seniors and college students who seek careers in manufacturing. In addition, 18 students received a $500 "GO-Brennan" scholarship based on a YouTube promotion tied to NBT’s sponsorship of 16-year-old stock car driver and welder Brennan Palmiter.

Applicants were required to be full-time students with a minimum 3.0 GPA (for a college scholarship) or a 2.0 GPA (for a trade/technical school scholarship) enrolled in an engineering or manufacturing-related course of study, or a trade or technical program that may lead to a career in manufacturing. Students submitted academic records and an engineering or manufacturing-related program description with each application.

Membership-based scholarships were available for individuals who are members of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International (FMA), the Tube & Pipe Association, International (TPA), or the Outside Processors Council (OPC); the employee of a member company; or the child of a member or member company’s employee.
