The Gene Haas Foundation has awarded a $35,000 grant to support the Precision Machining Technology department at North Dakota State College of Science. The funds will be used to award scholarships to current and future NDSCS Precision Machining Technology students. Representatives from Productivity, Inc. visited NDSCS to present the check on behalf of the Gene Haas Foundation.
This year’s grant follows a $30,000 grant from the Gene Haas Foundation in the fall of 2018. That grant resulted in scholarships for 16 Precision Machining Technology students.
The NDSCS Alumni Foundation hosted a Scholarship Luncheon on January 29, 2020. Nearly 100 scholarship donors and recipients attended the event.

NDSCS graduates are in high demand – a fact that was reinforced through the College’s most recent Graduate Placement Report, which identified that the College’s placement rate has risen to 99%. Often, those graduates were hired prior to graduation, and may have had their education sponsored by their employer. Seeking to fill workforce needs, and to encourage employees to return to their hometowns, many businesses and local economic development organizations have turned to student sponsorship programs.
