We are currently not accepting applications. We will open next year’s application in January 2021.


NFPA will provide $2,000 scholarships to help students enrolled in high schools, technical colleges and engineering schools pursue their interests in fluid power.


Scholarships are available to students enrolled in an accredited U.S. or Canadian school with 9 credit hours or the equivalent, who have earned a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale cumulative and who are taking, or plan to take, a minimum of one fluid power course.

High School Seniors: You must provide an admission letter from the University or Tech School Engineering Department providing enrollment.*

College Seniors/Graduating Applicants: Students graduating in May or June of the current year may not apply for a scholarship, unless enrolled in a four year school in the next (fall) semester. An acceptance or admission letter must accompany the application and the student must show enrollment and/or completion of at least one fluid power course.* Four-year school graduates pursuing a Master's Degree are not eligible for this scholarship. 

*If an admission letter is not provided with an application that is selected, it must be submitted before the scholarship award will be issued.
