The Powder Coating Institute (PCI) recently awarded its 2020 scholarships to students studying various subjects that can lead to a career in powder coating.
“As the Baby Boomers retire, the powder coating industry needs to replace them with new, young talent. The PCI scholarship program is the industry’s investment into fulfilling this need. We are excited to present awards to six deserving students who are studying chemistry and engineering with the hope that they will join our industry after they graduate,” states Kevin Coursin, PCI executive director.
PCI administers the scholarship program, which promotes and solicits applications from students through numerous educational institutions and the industry at large.
The scholarship program continues to grow and attract new talent to the powder coating industry, which includes students pursuing degrees in polymer science, manufacturing, engineering, business management and marketing. With continued support from corporate donors, the scholarship program reaches students throughout the country in efforts to steer them into careers in the powder coating industry.
