WMA Scholarship Program gives out a record number of scholarships in 2017

The Wichita Manufacturers Association promotes and encourages the general welfare of the manufacturing industry. The WMA is encouraging students to pursue manufacturing careers by offering scholarships to students planning to study manufacturing at any technical college, community college or state college/university in Kansas. The number of scholarships given out each year is determined by the WMA board and member donations.

The WMA created the scholarship program in 1993 to support the educational and training opportunities that develop better manufacturing interest, methods and employees. The scholarships are funded by the generosity of WMA members as well as individual and commercial donations. This year WMA provided 24 scholarships: 5 scholarships funded by Globe Engineering, 5 scholarships funded by The Bradbury Group, 4 scholarships funded by Wichita Manufacturing Association, 1 scholarship funded by Aerospace Systems & Components, 1 scholarship funded by Allen, Gibbs & Houlik, 1 scholarship funded by Conco Construction, 1 scholarship funded by Great Plains Industries, 1 scholarship funded by Great Plains Ventures, 1 scholarship funded by PeopleReady, 1 scholarship funded by Sam & Kay Jones, 1 scholarship funded by Sunflower Bank, 1 scholarship funded by Wichita Area Technical College and 1 scholarship funded by Workforce Alliance of South Central of Kansas.
