The Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME)’s scholarship funding arm, AME Institute, and Kronos Incorporated announced a new scholarship for students interested in manufacturing careers through the Dr. Sherrie Ford Manufacturing as a Career Path 2014-2015 Scholarship Program.
 
News Facts
Scholarships will be awarded to 15 U.S.-based student applicants entering an accredited college or trade school in the next academic year, beginning in the fall semester.
 
Each recipient will receive a financial scholarship and an additional signing bonus will be offered to those recipients who complete their programs and enter the manufacturing workforce. Eligible applicants include individuals who are currently graduating from high school or those with prior work experience who are seeking a college education. The first 300 applications will be considered for the upcoming fall term. Applications are now being accepted and are due June 13, 2014.
 
The most pressing workforce challenge facing U.S. manufacturers today is a mounting skills gap - with a moderate to severe shortage of available, qualified workers – a trend anticipated to worsen in the next three to five years. Nearly six hundred thousand manufacturing jobs remain unfilled because of this skills gap.1
 
The AME Institute and Kronos recognize the critical role that the workforce plays in a manufacturer’s ability to be productive, innovative, and globally competitive. By offering this scholarship, the AME Institute and Kronos are contributing to the development of the U.S. manufacturing workforce of the future.
 
Paul G. Kuchuris, Jr., president, The Association for Manufacturing Excellence says, “Nearly 80 percent of manufacturers in the U.S. are facing a shortage of skilled labor. In conjunction with the AME Institute and Kronos, we are excited to offer this scholarship that supports and promotes manufacturing as a career path.”
 
Charlie DeWitt, vice president, business development, Kronos says, “Kronos helps thousands of manufacturers around the world to optimize their workforce. We look forward to working with the AME Institute to inspire the manufacturing workforce of the future.”
