Fluid Power Curriculum Grants

Faculty from U.S. colleges and universities with undergraduate mechanical engineering programs are invited to apply for this program.

The program objective is to create awareness and engage students in fluid power; engage faculty in the development and teaching of fluid power; and to develop, replicate and disseminate high-quality, high-impact university level fluid power curriculum.

A $25,000 grant will be awarded for the design and development of a fluid power module to be embedded into core engineering curriculum.

Deadline: Friday, June 9, 2017
