The Scholarship, which began in 2006, is a partnership between Accumold and the Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC). The scholarship was formed to create opportunity for Accumold to help train the company’s future workforce and at the same time help raise the general awareness of the DMACC Tool & Die program. Scholars are given the opportunity to work at Accumold and receive on-the-job-training while attending DMACC. The actual scholarship covers the technical credits required for the DMACC Machinist Diploma (1st year) and the Die Making Diploma (2nd year). The award is estimated at over $9,500. This brings the total the number of scholarships awarded since its inception to 31.

Accumold is a high-tech manufacturer of micro-sized and small injection molded plastic parts and components. For more than 25 years Accumold has produced extremely small plastic parts with very complex geometries and tight tolerances. These parts are used in a variety of market sectors from consumer electronics, medical devices to top secret military applications.

The scholarship begins in the fall 2013 semester of DMACC. We congratulate the recipients on this achievement.
