ATC Foundation Receives Grant to Support CNC and Machine Tool Students

The Gene Haas Foundation has awarded a $10,000 grant to the Aiken Technical College Foundation to fund scholarships for students enrolled in computerized numerical control and machine tool technology programs.

“We are very grateful for the support from the Gene Haas Foundation for furthering advancement in manufacturing training for Aiken Technical College students. This award will provide needed scholarship funds and the opportunity for students to compete in CNC competitions,” said ATC Foundation Director Beth LaClair, Ph.D.

This is the second year the ATC Foundation has received a grant from the Gene Haas Foundation. Last year, a $6,000 grant was used to award scholarships to students enrolled in the Machining of Metals course.

Gene Haas, founder and owner of Haas Automation, Inc., created the Gene Haas Foundation in 1999, which donates millions annually to support manufacturing education and training of future CNC and machine tool technicians.

The Foundation’s website states that “by providing scholarship grants, sponsoring individual and team CNC competitions, and partnering with the very best CNC training programs in the world, the Foundation helps expand the availability of high-quality manufacturing technology training worldwide.”
