Fluke's Grant Program for Educators and Students in Industrial Process Control Technology
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.
