AWRF Scholarship

While AWRF stands for Associated Wire Rope Fabricators, membership covers the spectrum of the lifting, rigging, and load securement industry. Membership is extended to manufacturers and distributors alike.

Winning a scholarship is a happy and proud moment for not just the winner, but also for the friends and family. AWRF’s scholarship program awards seven scholarships per year to a current employee, or child of a current employee of an AWRF member company in the U.S. and Canada. The candidate also must be planning to attend a college/university this year, and to obtain a degree at an accredited college/university, or vocational school.

 Crosby is proud to congratulate Allison as an AWRF scholarship recipient. She was awarded one of the seven AWRF scholarships for 2018. She was eager to apply for the AWRF scholarship due to the large impact AWRF has had on her family, specifically her dad, Bill Higginbotham, who is a District Sales Manager and Product Trainer for Crosby.
