Nordson Corporation and the Powder Coating Institute (PCI) awarded a $5,000 Nordson BUILDS/PCI Scholarship to college student Benjamin Whipker, who attends the Rochester Institute of Technology and is studying electrical mechanical engineering technology.
The Nordson BUILDS /PCI Scholarship is a merit-based scholarship administered by PCI.

Students must be seeking degrees in engineering or business to qualify, and demonstrate an interest in powder coatings.
“We want students to be cognizant of the powder coating industry and to realize there are great careers to be had in the U.S. manufacturing sector,” says Dan Thompson, director of sales for Nordson . “Ben is ambitious and deserving, and represents the future of continued manufacturing growth in the U.S.”
