Material Handling Education Foundation Scholarship Program
Scholarship Sponsored by Material Handling Education Foundation, Inc.
The Material Handling Education Foundation, Inc. (www.mhefi.net) is an independent charitable organization that was established in 1976 with a mission to engage and attract students to the material handling and supply chain industry by providing financial support. Since 1976, our programs have supported over 1,000 students and educators seeking pathways to quality educational programs and fulfilling careers.
The Foundation will offer scholarship award opportunities to undergraduates who are pursuing a material handling or supply chain career. The student should clearly demonstrate dedication to achieving excellence, strong leadership skills, potential for future growth as a leader and persistence in the pursuit of education.
Scholarship awards range from $1,500 to $6,000 and must be used for costs relating to tuition, fees and books associated with attending school full-time. One application allows students to compete for one of the multiple scholarships offered by the Foundation. Scholarships are one-year awards, and former recipients may re-apply each year if they continue to meet the eligibility requirements.
