The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) is now accepting applications for its two annual scholarships for AM education and professional development at its annual conference. The scholarships have been established in the memory of Guy Bourdeau and Randy Stevens, two longtime supports of the users group that were passionate about knowledge sharing in the additive manufacturing industry, the organization states.
The scholarships are awarded to one student and an educator who would not be able to attend the group’s annual conference otherwise. The Guy E. Bordeau scholarship is granted to a student of any major or field who can demonstrate the integration of 3D printing into their profession. The Randy Stevens scholarship is for any educator that emphasizes or focuses on additive manufacturing in their curriculum.
“The AMUG conference was an event that left memories I will hold on to in my professional life. Coming from an academic background, I viewed the AMUG Conference as a potential bridge to take me towards collaboration and involvement with AM technology in industry, and I would say that this happened,” said Yaser Shanjani, 2015 recipient of the Guy E. Bordeau scholarship.
“These scholarships embody Guy’s and Randy’s spirit and passion for additive manufacturing, and they continue the legacy of two giving gentlemen,” says Mark Barfoot, president of AMUG.
Applications are being accepted until February 15, 2016.
