(Beaver Dam) Moraine Park Technical College has been named part of NASA’s Wisconsin Scholarship Grant Consortium. The distinction makes Moraine Park just the second technical college in the state to be named to this elite group. The consortium exists to promote aerospace-related science, technology, engineering and math education as well as incentives participation in the state’s aerospace workforce. Moraine Park will now have access to unique research, scholarship and fellowship grants. Students and staff will also be able to directly engage with research programs at NASA centers around the country through internships, co-ops, faculty visit programs and the NASA Ambassadors program. The Moraine Park programs that will qualify under the consortium include the Electromechanical Technology, Mechanical Design Technology, Process Engineering Technology – Industrial/Manufacturing, Process Engineering Technology – Quality Assurance and CNC/Tool and Die Technologies.
