FCH to Award Fastener Training Institute Scholarship

The FCH Sourcing Network has teamed up with the Fastener Training Institute for a fourth year to announce the promotion and selection of a scholarship candidate who will be awarded full tuition to the Fastener Training Institute course, “Fastener Training Week”. Once completed, the course qualifies students to sit for the Certified Fastener Specialist exam, a distinguished industry credential.

To qualify for selection, candidates must work within the fastener industry and must submit a brief essay, approximately 300 words in length. The essay should address the importance of training in the fastener industry, and the impact of training on the candidate's career. Candidates can be nominated by owners or managers, who are welcome to submit an essay on behalf of a nominated candidate. There is a limit of one nominated candidate per company if the nomination is being made by a manager on behalf of a candidate, however, there is no limit to the number of individual candidates from any given company who submit an essay on their own behalf.

The deadline to submit scholarship candidate essays is September 30th, 2017, and the winner will be announced during the Las Vegas fastener show, October 18th, 2017.

In addition to the grand prize, four runners up prizes will be awarded. Runners up will receive a significant discount to Fastener Training Week and an FTI reference manual.

The FTI will also provide vouchers to all scholarship applicants to attend an online training webinar, so there is no reason not to get applications in ahead of the deadline.

Scholarship essays become property of the Fastener Training Institute. Applications may be submitted via email to: [email protected].
