AKRON (Jan. 31, 2012)—The ACS Rubber Division is promoting a number of scholarships and training opportunities the organization and its affiliate rubber groups are offering to students and people already in the rubber industry.
For industry participants, the division is providing a $1,250 rubber technology training award, to help a company's employee attend a division spring or fall event.
Students can apply for an undergraduate scholarship. Two $5,000 scholarships are offered for students entering their junior senior years and pursuing a technical discipline related to the rubber industry.
Both the training award and scholarships have a March 1 deadline for nomination/application.
Also, eleven rubber groups are offering scholarships.
Information on all the programs is available at the Rubber Division website, www.rubber.org.
