Every year, Oneida Air Systems awards $1,000 each to a student from North Bennet Street School, Oregon College of Art and Craft, and Rochester Institute of Technology. The Future Craftsmanship Scholarship is designed to foster and support the next generation of American craftsmen and women. Students are selected based on their skill mastery, love for their work, and dedication to craft as a career path.
