Fluid Power Teaching Grants

The NFPA Education and Technology Foundation previously awarded grants of up to $5,000 to 2-year technical schools and 4-year universities to facilitate the teaching hydraulics and pneumatics to their students. These grants were used to support teaching in multiple formats, including hands-on fluid power student competitions, formal fluid power courses and software, building fluid power systems and demonstrators, and in the design of student capstone projects.

The Foundation no longer awards Teaching Grants.
