The Society of Vacuum Coaters Foundation's premier mission is to sustain growth in the Vacuum Coating Industry by cultivating and supporting promising young professionals entering our dynamic field. For over 17 years, the Foundation has provided scholarships to students and early career technicians working with theoretical and applied vacuum coating technologies. Since their inception, they have given over 100 scholarships to students and coating technicians from over twenty countries--awards that have totaled over $300,000. The Foundation also grants travel awards to students to attend and present technical papers at the annual SVC Technical Symposium.
The Kurt J. Lesker Company supports this important initiative--we would courage you to join us as a corporate or individual sponsor of the Foundation. The SVCF needs your support to maintain and expand their efforts to attract outstanding minds within the rising generation of scientists and engineers to our field. We need you to invest in the future of vacuum coating technology.
