Fluid Power Curriculum Grants

The NFPA Education and Technology Foundation awards grants of up to $25,000 to 4-year universities to develop, replicate, or disseminate high-quality, high-impact undergraduate-level fluid power curriculum. Each piece of curriculum engages faculty in the development and teaching of fluid power on their campuses, and creates heightened fluid power awareness and engagement among their students.

Our next funding cycle will begin in February 2017, with an application deadline of April 30, 2017.
