How can a student become a Michelin Technical Scholar?
Michelin Scholars must demonstrate their aptitude for a successful career as an Electronic Engineering Technician or Mechatronics by passing an aptitude test. Those with the aptitude to be a Michelin Scholar are then interviewed at a local Michelin facility to determine if they have the motivation and drive necessary to become a member of the Michelin team.


What is the Michelin Technical Scholars Program?

Michelin North America offers scholarships to select students in the Electronic Engineering Technology (EET) or Mechatronics major at Midlands Technical College. The scholarship covers the cost of tuition, fees, and books. Michelin Scholars also participate in a paid co-op program reinforcing their classroom knowledge by working part-time in a Michelin manufacturing facility.


Who can take the test?

This is for 11th & 12th graders and they should know that this is a 2-year program through MTC .


Michelin Scholar informational meeting will take place on October 30th. There will be two sessions, 8:45am and 12:45pm. Parents are invited to attend. Please see your career specialist for a permission slip to attend.
