Nov. 15, 2017—The TechForce Foundation is managing a scholarship program established by Roush Yates Engines to support students enrolled in the computer numerical control (CNC) Machining Technology program at Universal Technical Institute’s (UTI’s) NASCAR Technical Institute in Mooresville, N.C.
A total of eight $4,000 CNC Machining scholarships will be given out, four will be named after Roush Yates Engines’ co-founder Robert Yates, while the other four will be named after co-founder, Jack Roush.
The scholarships will be given in Q4 and the rest will be awarded in 2018 and 2019.
“The manufacturing industry has evolved, seeking highly skilled workers who have not been easy to identify nor hire, but are in great demand," said Mary Ann Mauldwin, Roush Yates Engines’ chief operating officer.
To help solve that problem, she said, “We are committed to this partnership with UTI, which leverages each of our business’ strengths, because it provides the framework to ensure our industry has a pipeline of future CNC machining technicians with the skills and experience to fuel this growing segment of our business.”
CNC students at NASCAR Tech can apply for the scholarships here.
