Gene Haas Foundation
Scholarship Name: Gene Haas Foundation Scholarship Award
Contact: Mr. James Miller (Please address Correspondence to Mr. James Miller)
Donor: Gene Haas Foundation
In 1999 Gene Haas founded the Gene Haas Foundation. Growing up with a strong social conscience instilled by his family, Haas initially formed the foundation to fund the needs of the local community. Haas Automation is a now a billion dollar company and this extraordinary growth has all come in an era when Americans were being told that the US doesn’t manufacture anything anymore. Those perceptions and decisions have led to dire statistics in our vocational educational system. The focus of the foundation has shifted with this to the current outreach and methodology.
The scholarships are to be given to students currently enrolled-in or will be enrolling-in a machining-based training and/or engineering program.
