Engineer and Maintenance Scholarships
ASB is continuing its Engineering/Maintenance Scholarship Program for 2019/20. Summer engineering student interns and maintenance/machinist employees can apply for five $4,000 scholarships to help them reach their educational goals and advancement within the wholesale baking industry.
The purposes of the scholarship program are:
- To provide financial support for university students who are pursuing a degree in engineering, have interned at a bakery and are interested in a career in the wholesale baking industry.
- To provide financial support for wholesale baking company employees who are pursuing additional training in maintenance/machine operations at a trade school, vocational institution or community college.
The recently released study commissioned by ASB and ABA, “The Workforce Gap in U.S. Commercial Baking: Trends, Challenges and Solutions,” showed that the three areas of greatest need for skilled workers in the wholesale baking industry are engineers, machinists, and maintenance personnel. The ASB Scholarship Program was established to directly address these wholesale baking workforce needs.
