Internship Scholarship Application

Applications will be accepted FROM August 1, 2023 through December 31, 2023 - THESE SCHOLARSHIPS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE FOR FRESHMEN, SOPHOMORES, JUNIORS, & SENIORS (undergrad students ONLY)

Many employers are more inclined to hire students that not only have good grades, but have some work experience. This scholarship directly focuses on those students that have taken the initiative to participate in an internship or co-op to further their knowledge of the casting industry. These on-the-job experiences give the student a hands-on perspective of the casting industry. The goal of this scholarship is to reward the work experience gained in the industry with a focus on project work, lessons learned, and leadership development.
