Welcome to the first year of the Next Generation Scholarship Program! GEM Equipment of Oregon, Inc. wants to encourage Oregon’s youth to get started in the welding industry. This year there will be three scholarships, each in the amount of $1,500. In addition, GEM Equipment will offer the scholarship recipients an opportunity to work a three month long, summer internship at one of our two locations. Interns will learn the foundations of welding and fabrication, as well as gaining experience in a shop environment. Our scholarships will be awarded to three high school students in the graduating year of 2022. We have spent the last couple of months visiting schools in Yamhill and Marion counties, presenting this offer to dozens of high school students. We are looking for enthusiastic applicants with a good work ethic who would be a valuable addition to our team and program.
