SMRP opens maintenance scholarship program
The Society for Maintenance and Reliability Professionals (SMRP) has launched its annual scholarship program for the next generation of maintenance, reliability, and physical asset management professionals.
Financial assistance is available through the scholarship program for individuals in universities, community colleges, graduate programs, and two-year programs centred on maintenance, reliability, and asset management.
Scholarship applicants are judged on grade point average, work experience, extracurricular activities, and merit. Applications are being accepted until June 4.
