TechForce Administers Eight New Scholarships

The TechForce Foundation will oversee eight scholarships in the name of Roush Yates Engines.

TechForce Foundation announced that they will be administering a scholarship program established by Roush Yates Engines to support students enrolled in the computerized numerical control (CNC) machining technology program at the Universal Technical Institute (UTI) NASCAR Technical Institute in Mooresville, N.C.

Eight $4,000 CNC Machining scholarships will be administered: four will be named after Roush Yates Engines’ co-founder Robert Yates and four will be named after co-founder Jack Roush. Scholarships will start in late 2017 with the remainder being awarded in 2018 and 2019.

“We are elated to administer these scholarships — first, for such an innovative company as Roush Yates Engines and second, for the specific need they address,” said TechForce CEO and Executive Director Jennifer Maher. “Students will get the hands-on training a CNC machinist needs to create and engineer everything from aerospace parts and industrial applications to medical equipment and high-performance engine components.”

Doug Yates, president and CEO of Roush Yates Engines, pointed out the importance of the scholarships. “CNC machining is critical to the current and future success of Roush Yates Engines and manufacturing in the U.S. and beyond. By partnering with UTI we have created a platform for success in the CNC manufacturing industry.”

He continued, “The Roush Yates Engines’ scholarships support our belief in the next generation of CNC manufacturers. The future is bright, and we are 100% dedicated to this dynamic industry.”

TechForce Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on championing and aiding aspiring vehicle technicians. For more information on these and other scholarships, visit www.techforcefoundation.org.
