Milwaukee, WI – The NFPA Education and Technology Foundation has awarded grants to four community colleges. The grants will help the schools purchase new hydraulic and pneumatic trainers, or upgrade existing equipment in their fluid power labs. The following schools each received a grant of $25,000:

Angelina College, Lufkin, Texas.
Central Community College, Grand Island, Nebraska
Hennepin Technical College, Eden Prairie, Minnesota
Macomb Community College, Warren, Michigan

In making decisions for grant awards, the schools' ability to acquire in-kind donations to maintain the labs, and the number of students involved, were important factors. Also considered were the labs' multiplier effects to create other relevant projects and curricula.

Past grant recipients of the Foundation's Fluid Power Lab Grant Program include Western Michigan University for a new fluid power laboratory, and the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) to establish a mechatronics/fluid power lab.

To learn more about fluid power lab grants and other Foundation initiatives, contact Carrie Tatman Schwartz at ctschwartz@nfpa.com.

The NFPA Education and Technology Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, charitable organization that supports educational programs and research in fluid power. The Foundation is led by industry volunteers and administered by the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA). NFPA is a trade association that provides a forum for the fluid power industry's channel partners —manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, customers and educators.
