AMPP 2021 Diversity and Inclusion Grant
Equality and opportunity must be a part of our industry and we have established this grant to help historically excluded and intentionally marginalized people worldwide to achieve professional success in the corrosion and coatings industry.
We are committed to providing opportunities in the coatings and corrosion industry for those who need them and to help in this effort, we have created the new Diversity and Inclusion Grant.
What we hope to achieve:
- Increase access to professional opportunities for members of excluded and marginalized populations.
- Fund career development efforts of deserving applicants to drive equitable workforce development.
- Increase the number of qualified individuals in the workforce to support long-term sustainability for the industry.
We will accomplish this by providing grant funds to applicants based on a standard rubric and evaluation cycle. Grant funds must be used for professional development in the coatings and corrosion industry, including (but not limited to): training courses, approved industry organizations’ event registration, AMPP membership fee, educational resource purchases, and professional tools and equipment.
Who is eligible?
Members of historically excluded and intentionally marginalized populations due to inequitable historical and present-day policies, or regulations, lack of infrastructure and resources, discrimination, conflicts, and targeted exclusion. These groups include (but are not limited to): members of underrepresented racial groups, women, people who identify as LGBTQIA+, individuals with disabilities, low-income individuals, and others.
The resources provided through this grant depend on the needs of each applicant as demonstrated through the application. Award amounts may range from $500 to $2,500.
Application period: July 1, 2021 – September 30, 2021
