The New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program, NJMEP is dedicated to New Jersey manufacturers, their business, and their local communities. Manufacturing is about people. The people needed to make, distribute, and utilize the products these businesses work so hard to develop. To ensure New Jersey communities and their people continue to thrive, NJMEP created two scholarship programs that offer individuals the chance to take professional steps forward.
Both of these scholarships are focused on furthering education and obtaining critical professional skills to help secure employment. They aim to accomplish this mission through two different avenues. For a more in-depth look at the scholarships available through NJMEP, review the information below.
