March 26, 2014

The Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME)’s scholarship funding arm, AME Institute, Chelmsford, Mass., and Kronos Inc., Rolling Meadows, Ill., have established a new scholarship for students interested in manufacturing careers through the Dr. Sherrie Ford Manufacturing as a Career Path 2014-2015 Scholarship Program.

Scholarships will be awarded to 15 U.S.-based student applicants entering an accredited college or trade school in the next academic year, beginning in the fall semester. Each recipient will receive a financial scholarship, and an additional signing bonus will be offered to those recipients who complete their programs and enter the manufacturing workforce. Eligible applicants include individuals who are currently graduating from high school or those with prior work experience who are seeking a college education.

The first 300 applications will be considered for the upcoming fall term. Applications now are being accepted and are due June 13, 2014. For complete scholarship requirements and application guidelines, visit or contact Nancy Wajler, director of education and training, AME, at
