Modern Industrial seeks to meet the needs of engineers, contractors, and other commercial and industrial professionals by providing them with the products they need at competitive prices.

At Modern Industrial, we admire those who aren’t afraid to put in an honest day’s work. We also recognize the current skills gap in our country, with thousands of skilled jobs available and a shortage of trained, skilled technicians to fill that demand. We created this scholarship to show our appreciation for tomorrow’s skilled tradespeople and to make their pursuit of education and training a bit easier on them financially.
