Fluke announces new grant program
EVERETT, Wash.-- Fluke Corporation will donate $65,000 worth of test instruments to schools and training programs for use in teaching students to diagnose and repair sophisticated industrial process control systems. Through the new Fluke Industrial Control Grant Program, instructors in accredited U.S. training programs can apply for grants of Fluke industrial test instruments for classroom use.
Five different schools will be selected to receive kits of nine Fluke test tools. Each kit is valued at $13,000 and includes three Fluke 719 pressure calibrators, three Fluke 773 milliamp process clamp meters and three Fluke 289 True-rms industrial logging multimeters with TrendCapture. Fluke will announce the winners in November, 2010.
"Fluke values the contribution the instructors and trainers make and appreciate the opportunity to participate in the classroom," said Jim Shields, product manager, process tools. "The winning applicants will receive state-of-the-art test instruments they and their students can really use."
Whether they receive a grant or not, educators can take advantage of important teaching support provided by Fluke: videos on all three products; a curriculum kit on industrial process controls; Fluke webinars on process tools; and a live webinar featuring Fluke process expert Jim Shields.
To participate in the program, educators must be members of the Fluke Education Partnership Program. Complete guidelines and an application form are available at the Fluke Educators Portal at support.fluke.com. Deadline for applications is October 18, 2010. Grant winners must be willing to provide photos and/or videos of their students using the tools, and provide comments regarding their experience with the products.
