Support Education With the FPEF
Who are we?
A 501(c)(3), the Fluid Power Educational Foundation (FPEF) implemented a program to develop and support a network of schools with a strong focus on fluid power through curriculum guidance, assistance in acquiring hardware, and scholarship offerings.
At the direction of a small but dedicated volunteer Board of Trustees, the FPEF continues to seek ways to assist students and professionals in becoming well-educated fluid power industry specifiers, manufacturers, educators, and customers. With the assistance of industry, associations, and individuals, the Foundation acts to improve the presence and application of fluid power in a technologically advanced world.
What do we do?
The FPEF actively pursues funding for both its own educational initiatives as well as related opportunities for students and professionals in the fluid power industry. It constantly searches for opportunities that have content related to the study of fluid power and its associated technologies, including mathematics, science, and motion control.
FPEF encourages workers to enter the field of fluid power, and to do so with the best and most up-to-date educational background possible. If you would like FPEF to list your organization’s internship opportunities or scholarships, please email email@example.com.

Educational institutions. Universities, technical colleges, high schools, and middle schools provide access to the young people who will become the professionals of tomorrow.
The fluid power industry. With better-educated individuals entering the workforce, the fluid power industry will be an excellent solution for years to come!
