Travers Tool for Schools Scholarship

TRAVERS TOOL FOR SCHOOLS METALWORKING SCHOLARSHIPS

Sharing our expertise with those that share our passion for the industry is the founding principle of the Travers Tool For Schools program, and we are thrilled to partner with Dynabrade to offer (3) annual metalworking scholarships that each provide $500 USD worth of tools to students pursuing careers in manufacturing. Awarded to one underclass (freshmen through junior class) high school student, one high school senior class student, and one college student, these tool scholarships are designed to lessen the financial burden students face and allow them join the ranks of the skilled machinists, CNC operators, welders and exacting craftsmen that make up the fabric of the manufacturing industry.
