NFPA to Support Internship Hiring for Members

Sept. 10, 2021
The association will pay $5,000 to companies that hire qualified students.

In an effort to help member companies connect with future workers interested in the fluid power industry, the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) has created a program to support internship programs.

Students can apply through the NFPA to be placed in intern and co-op programs with member companies. The NFPA will pay those companies $5,000 if they hire a student for an open position to help cover the training and onboarding costs.

“This program will help members find qualified candidates who are interested in fluid power and will help students get directly connected to fluid power internships, co-ops and full-time jobs,” NFPA officials said in a press release.

To be eligible, companies must be an NFPA member, have a quality fluid power internship or co-op program at the company, and submit an application.

The awards will be paid directly to the NFPA member company after the student goes through the application process and is hired by the company.

There was no announced limit for the awards, but NFPA officials said the effort to place students will continue if the budgeted money for the program runs out. “NFPA will notify members once the annual budget has been spent, but we will continue to send student resumes to members if they are interested in receiving them,” association officials said.

“There is no application deadline. We will continue to accept member applications until the budgeted funds are depleted for the year.”
