BrassCraft Manufacturing Co., a leading designer, manufacturer, and distributor of rough plumbing products, is now accepting 2023 applications for its BrassCraft Zell Scholarship Program. This scholarship program provides financial support to plumbing apprentices who are the next generation of the plumbing trade. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the program, which has awarded more than $600,000 to plumbing apprentices across the United States and Canada since its inception.
“At BrassCraft, we believe in investing in the future of the plumbing industry. Our Zell Scholarship Program is one of the ways we support these apprentices, providing them with financial assistance and resources as they become established professionals in the field,” said Jonathan Wierengo, vice president of marketing and product development. “As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Zell Scholarship, we're proud of the impact we've had on the industry and the lives of those we've supported. We look forward to continuing to help young professionals build their future for decades to come,” Wierengo said.
The BrassCraft Zell Scholarship program was named in honor of the company’s founder, Robert M. Zell, who founded the company in Michigan more than 75 years ago. Since then, BrassCraft has been committed to meeting the needs of the professional plumber by providing quality products they can trust.
Full program requirements can be found on the company’s website.
