Accumold out of Ankeny, Iowa, is pleased to announce the award of ten Accumold Scholarships winners.

Two Dallas County residents were among the 10 to receive the scholarships. They are Luke Welch of Woodward and Matthew Smith of Waukee.

The scholarship began 11 years ago as a partnership between Accumold and the Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC). The scholarship was formed to create an opportunity for Accumold to train the company’s future workforce and at the same time help raise the general awareness of the DMACC Tool & Die and Robotics programs. Scholars are given the opportunity to work at Accumold and receive on-the-job-training while attending DMACC. The scholarship covers the technical credits required for the DMACC Tool & Diemaking program and the Robotics & Control Systems Engineering Technology program. The awards are estimated at over $9,500. This brings the total the number of scholarships awarded since its inception to 56.

Accumold is a high-tech manufacturer of micro-sized and small injection molded plastic parts and components. For more than 30 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 2017 semester of DMACC. We congratulate the recipients on this achievement.
