About ThomasNet

For more than 115 years, ThomasNet has been an invaluable resource in the manufacturing community. The ThomasNet North American Manufacturing Scholarship was created as a call to action. By giving promising students the encouragement and financial support they need to pursue a career in manufacturing, we are reminding the entire industry how much the future depends on our ability to attract bright, creative and passionate minds.

No matter what brings you to this site; no matter what role you play in the world of North American manufacturing, we hope you will join us in this quest.
