Indiana Manufacturers Association and Vincennes University Team Up to Engage More Women in STEM Careers
Vincennes University’s College of Technology Scholarships for Women
Indianapolis - The Indiana Manufacturers Association (IMA) and Vincennes University (VU) share the goal of ensuring Indiana’s manufacturers have the skilled workforce needed to be successful.
In an effort to recruit and graduate more women, VU’s College of Technology will soon open its first living/learning technology community exclusively for women.
Forty-six (46) women will have the opportunity to reside and pursue degrees in high-skill, high-demand fields including: Advanced CNC Machining, Advanced Manufacturing Automation Technology, Industrial Maintenance, Architectural Studies, Computer Integrated Manufacturing, Construction, John Deere and Diesel, Electronics, Precision Machining, Product Design and Production Processes, Surveying and Welding.
In addition to offering the lowest tuition rate among all residential Indiana institutions, VU will offer this group of women nearly $20,000 each in room/board scholarships–this fully covers room and board expenses.
The development of talent in STEM fields is critical to Indiana’s economy. The Indiana Manufacturers Association and Vincennes University are excited to introduce this distinctive opportunity to encourage more Hoosier women to pursue STEM careers.
VU’s College of Technology Scholarships for Women are being offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

- Careers in manufacturing pay a median average of more than $70,000 annually (as compared to Indiana’s median wage of $43,000 in all other non-farm occupations).
- Studies suggest that students who participate in living/learning communities are often more engaged and satisfied with their college experience and more likely to remain in school.
Who Can Help and How
- Manufacturers may further contribute by sponsoring students with tuition assistance and offering students applied experience internships to provide real-world applications.
- Area high schools can team with local manufacturers to nominate female students interested in pursuing a career in STEM fields.
Formed in 1901, the Indiana Manufacturers Association is the second oldest manufacturers association in the country and the only trade association in Indiana that exclusively focuses on manufacturing. The Indiana Manufacturers Association, representing more than 1,400 companies, is dedicated to advocating for a business climate that creates, protects and promotes quality manufacturing jobs in Indiana. The staff of the Indiana Manufacturers Association has more than 140 years of combined governmental affairs experience and is recognized as experts in many areas including tax, environment, labor relations, human resources and healthcare.
Vincennes University, Indiana’s first college, is the State’s premier transfer institution and leader in innovative career programming. The VU community ensures educational access, delivers proven associate and baccalaureate programs, and offers cultural opportunities and community services in a diverse, student-centered, collegiate environment. The Vincennes University Mission Statement was revised in 2005 by a committee which gathered input from the VU community as well as examining the roles of the University.
