The American Welding Society (AWS) Foundation, in partnership with Miller Electric Mfg. LLC, offers the Light a Spark grant. “The AWS Foundation is extremely pleased to offer these grants to high schools that do not currently offer a welding program, thus providing hundreds of students the opportunity to experience welding for the first time and consider the possibility of welding as a career,” said Monica Pfarr, AWS Foundation executive director. Up to seven starter packages valued at more than $14,000 each will be awarded. Applications for the grant are being accepted through Nov. 15, 2021.
