We’re also grateful to the companies and individuals who have contributed to the Scholarship Fund. Their generosity and commitment to training the next generation of tribology leaders has enabled the Section to award $30,000 to seventeen outstanding students over the last three years.

As we look forward to the 2017-18 Scholarship drive, we hope to count on you once again for your kind support. With your help, along with matching funds from National STLE Organization, we hope to award over $12,000 in 2018 to deserving students in our local area. All contributions will be acknowledged at our monthly meetings, on our website and in communications to our members.  It’s a great way to enhance your company’s image while helping deserving local students.  All contributions are Tax Deductible to the extent allowed by law and should be payable to:
