NIBA – The Belting Association honors the memory of Ron “Rubber Ron” Roalsen for his ‘common sense’ approach to our industry and the people who work hard within it. Thanks to a grant from Ron’s family, NIBA is pleased to annually offer two (2) Technical Seminar Scholarships for employees of NIBA member companies. Ron Roalsen always fought for the hard-working men and women who work in NIBA member companies, and the Rubber Ron Scholarship will keep helping those individuals improve their skills.
How to Apply
At the completion of the NIBA Heavyweight Technical Seminar, all participants will have the opportunity to submit a short (100 word or less) essay on how they will apply what they have learned at the seminar when they return to work.
Two (2) winners each year will be selected, and the cost of the seminar plus $500 will be reimbursed to their NIBA member company.
