Twenty-nine students seeking careers in manufacturing earned scholarships toward their college or trade school education from Nuts, Bolts & Thingamajigs ( and SolidWorks (

NBT, the foundation of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Assn., and SolidWorks awarded 11 traditional scholarships to college- or trade school-bound high-school seniors and college students seeking careers in manufacturing.
In addition, 18 students received $500 GO-Brennan scholarships based on a YouTube promotion tied to NBT’s sponsorship of 16-year-old stock car driver and welder Brennan Palmiter.

To be eligible for the traditional scholarships, applicants were required to be full-time students with a minimum GPA enrolled in an engineering or manufacturing-related course of study, or a trade or technical program that may lead to a career in manufacturing.

Students were responsible for submitting academic records and an engineering or manufacturing-related program description.
