How can we encourage future engineers and technicians to consider the die casting industry? What will set them on a career path in our industry? How can someone advance their education in the field of die casting technology? A Laine Scholarship can address these questions.
Each year, the David Laine Fund provides scholarships to college students that have interned with die casting companies. Any student that has interned with a die casting company or supplier company is eligible. Any intern can apply, they did not have to be placed or identified through NADCA. In 2011, a combined $9,000 in Laine scholarships was awarded. If your company employs interns, please encourage them to review the link below and apply for a scholarship. Additional information is available through the following link: www.diecasting.org/scholarship/
