  Students Taught
Fluid Power each year at 2-year technical schools

Through our Fluid Power Teaching and Laboratory Grant Programs, we are helping 2-year technical schools and colleges establish the teaching materials and state-of-the-art teaching laboratories that are needed to embed fluid power into their training curriculum. 

To date, 8 schools have received teaching grants and 9 schools have received laboratory grants.

Each teaching element or laboratory facilitates the teaching of fluid power to dozens of students on each campus. At last count, NFPA’s 2-year technical school education partners collectively report teaching fluid power to more than 2,900 students. 

Deadline

We are not offering Lab Grants this year, but may return to them in the following year.

Description

The NFPA Education and Technology Foundation awards grants of up to $25,000 to 2-year technical schools to help establish and sustain state-of-the-art fluid power trainers and teaching laboratories. Each lab can be used to educate hundreds of future fluid power technicians and engineers.

These grants are focused on projects that include both hydraulic and pneumatic instruction, engage students in the development and construction of the training devices, and allow for large multiplier effects in the creation of new projects and curricula.

Eligibility

2-year technical schools interested in establishing and sustaining state-of-the-art fluid power trainers and teaching laboratories

How to Apply

We are not offering Lab Grants this year, but may return to them in the following year.
