Partnership + Scholarship = Making a Difference
According to the Fabricators and Manufacturers Association International, "Manufacturers simply cannot find the skilled labor needed today to handle the kinds of sophisticated production processes and tasks required on the manufacturing shop floor."
Harper College is preparing students for careers as manufacturing professionals. Through partnerships, Harper students have connections to 100+ local manufacturing companies who host interns and hire Harper graduates.
Philanthropic partnerships with these companies and the Harper College Educational Foundation are allowing Harper students even more opportunities in the manufacturing field. Scholarships, like the one created by Chicago White Metal Casting, are designed to support incoming and current manufacturing students as they pursue their career goals.
