Lubrication Institute is proud to announce Scholarships in the field of Machinery Lubrication & Oil Analysis.

The importance of lubrication can be judged from the fact that nearly 50% of the equipment failures are earmarked to either incorrect choice of lubricants or poor lubrication practices. Interpretation of the oil analysis is also an important aspect to take preventive measures in time to avoid equipment failure. There is a huge shortage of trained professionals in this field.

Education and accredited certification are key to success, for those wanting to serve as lubrication engineers / technicians and chemists. While we try to minimize costs, for a whole variety of reasons those costs are too high for some people who desire to join our profession.

We at Lubrication Institute will help you further your knowledge through these scholarships.
Lubrication Institute would like to help twelve people each year to undergo appropriate training, achieve ICML certification and benefit from the Reliable Plant conferences held once a year in USA.
