The Powder Coating Institute (PCI) has announced its official establishment of an Educational Fund which is designated for the sole purpose of soliciting, recommending and approving scholarship awards 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,” says Dave Lurie, PCI Executive Director. “This newly established education fund will help to connect current industry to the people who will create technology advancements in the future.”
PCI’s Materials Technology Committee administers the Scholarship Request Program and works with the Executive Director of PCI and his staff to promote and solicit scholarship applications from students and educational institutions. The Materials Technology Committee will award scholarships based on a set of criteria established and approved by the PCI Board of Directors.
