Now Accepting Applications for Fall Scholarships. Apply here! Deadline, October 2.

The Precision Metalforming Association Educational Foundation (PMAEF), in cooperation with 15 PMA Districts, is offering scholarships of $1,000 or more to individuals seeking a career in the metalforming industry. Each award is for one year and will be granted based on academic merit.

Post-secondary students may reapply for consideration the following year. No applicant may receive more than two scholarship awards. Graduate students, trades job training, certificate program and apprentice applicants are limited to one award.

Since 2021, more than $80,000 has been awarded to nearly 100 recipients across PMA's 15 participating districts, and there's plenty of opportunities to grow!
