TMB Announces Student Scholarship Program, Make and Accelerate


Program Awards $500 to Select Dutchess, Putnam and Westchester County Graduating High School Students Moving into Advanced Manufacturing Course of Study

Hudson Valley, NY, March 12, 2018 – In support of graduating high school students targeting a career in technology or advanced manufacturing, Tompkins Mahopac Bank (TMB) has announced its new scholarship program, Make and Accelerate.

The program will recognize one graduating high school student in each of Dutchess, Putnam and Westchester counties, with a $500 scholarship toward costs associated with their Fall 2018 enrollment in an advanced manufacturing degree or technical program at a two- or four-year college or technical school. Selected students must have a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0. A total of $1,500 in donated funds will be awarded.

“Jobs in the advanced manufacturing industry not only often pay well, but also are a vital component of a strong economy,” said TMB President and CEO, Gerald J. Klein, Jr. “With increasing numbers of the industry’s workforce moving into retirement, the Make and Accelerate scholarship program helps support the next generation of computer technicians, machinists, equipment operators, robotics engineers, lab technicians, tool makers and others as they approach exciting and available careers in manufacturing and technical fields.”
