and Gina Gilchrist established the Gilchrist Foundation Fastener
Scholarship in 2000. Their goal was to return something to an industry
that was very good and supportive to them.
Those who receive awards
from the Gilchrist Foundation are expected, upon completion of their
schooling, to make an earnest effort to work in the fastener industry
or to pursue employment in an industry trade association member
Unlike many other scholarships,
applications for the Gilchrist Foundation Scholarship are accepted
during any year of a person's schooling. Also, an applicant may
be a part-time student currently working in the fastener industry.
