The Powder Coating Institute (PCI), Montgomery, Texas, has announced its official establishment of an educational fund designated for awarding scholarships to students who are pursuing studies in fields related to powder coatings. They must be attending an educational institution that offers studies related to the powder coating industry such as polymer science, manufacturing, or engineering.
“One of PCI’s most important missions is to ensure a sustainable, well-trained future workforce as it relates to powder coating technology,” said Dave Lurie, PCI executive director. “This newly established educational fund will help to connect current industry to the people who will create technology advancements in the future.”
The institute’s Materials Technology Committee administers the scholarship request program and works with Lurie and his staff to promote and solicit scholarship applications from students and educational institutions. The committee will award scholarships based on a set of criteria established and approved by the PCI board of directors. For details, visit www.powdercoating.org.
