  • Organize and curate education resources and update online interface that is used by members and attracts new members to America Makes.

ASME will provide a stipend of $60,000 for the one year fellowship, which will start in mid- to late 2016. The fellow will not be required to relocate to Youngstown during the term of the fellowship.
