NFPA has been renewing applications and signing up new schools to support Fluid Power Clubs on university campuses. The goal of this initiative is to get younger students introduced to and interested in fluid power, support club activities, and connect students to industry professionals to learn about careers in fluid power.
So far, these universities have active clubs on their campuses this year:
- Iowa State University
- Milwaukee School of Engineering
- Murray State University
- North Carolina A&T State University
- Northern Illinois University
- Ohio University
- Purdue Northwest
- Purdue University
- South Dakota State University
- University of Alabama at Birmingham
- University of Cincinnati
- West Virginia University Institute of Technology
- Western Michigan University
NFPA supports clubs at universities to help students learn about fluid power while they work on educational and technical projects. Students can participate in the NFPA Vehicle Challenge, gain access to speakers and mentors in the industry, learn about job opportunities in the industry and gain leadership experience and professional development.
Requirements for clubs include:
- Must be four-year college or university
- Must offer Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees
- At least three student members (one must be at or below junior level)
- Faculty advisor who oversees fluid power club activities.
NFPA is still accepting applications. If you know of a university in your community that would benefit from up to $2,000 in stipend funding, industry access, and other resources, they can apply at nfpa.com.
