Scholarship Program Guidelines
- Annual award amounts and the number of scholarships available will be determined by the NBT Board of Directors. The NBT board may create new scholarship categories and/or revise the approved fields of study at its discretion.
- Completed and eligible applications are evaluated by a committee of scholarship reviewers comprised of volunteer members, donors, and partners from the manufacturing industry.
- Scholarship award funds will be sent directly to the financial aid department of the school the applicant will attend only. Award checks will not be mailed to applicants, parents of applicants, or to faculty departments (e.g., Engineering, Welding, Mfg Technology, etc.).
- A scholarship award may be used to defray the cost of tuition, books (when purchased through college store) and school fees. Required educational equipment or tools may also be covered, but only if they are available for purchase directly through the college store. Awards cannot be used for housing, meals, or specialty clothing — nor can scholarship funding be held for use beyond the school year in which awarded.
- Scholarship winners are responsible for advising NBT of any change in mailing address, phone number, or email address. Send notifications to email@example.com or call (815) 399-8700.
- NBT will retain records pertaining to receipt of donations to the scholarship fund and disbursement and use of scholarship funds.
- Staff, directors, and officers of FMA, FMAC, NBT, or members of the selection committees of NBT, as well as their children and relatives are ineligible.
- NBT will investigate any suspected misuse of funds and/or seek recovery of disbursed funds if misuse is determined. Recovered funds will be dedicated for charitable purposes.
