NFPA Forms Strategic Alliance with <i>FIRST®</i>

NFPA started a strategic alliance collaboration with FIRST® that will harness the similarities between the mission of FIRST and those of NFPA’s workforce development to get more students aware of and interested in fluid power and engineering. The partnership will not only promote FIRST programs to NFPA’s membership and education partners, but will also encourage them to become FIRST Mentors, Coaches, and Volunteers to extend the reach of the Association’s fluid power educational and career-building efforts to include FIRST students. NFPA will also offer a $40,000 merit-based scholarship to a high school senior who participates on a 2017 FIRST® Robotics Competition team. The scholarship is to be used to study engineering at any accredited technical school or university in the United States.
