We are seeking applicants for our first fellowship program! This is a prestigious new offering by the ARM Institute to advance the state of robotics in manufacturing. This opportunity is open both to existing ARM Members and non-members. Applications are due March 8, 2021 5:00 EST.

ARM Institute Fellows are experts in robotics for manufacturing and have a passion for addressing the challenges that hinder the adoption of robotics for manufacturers. ARM Institute Fellows apply innovative solutions to make a tangible impact on manufacturing activities during their designated project period.

The ARM Institute fellowship program is hands-on and requires a project submission with an award of up to $60,000. As an ARM Institute Fellow, you will work closely with ARM’s project management office to execute a robotics and AI focused project funded by this award. You will have the opportunity to brief your progress and your results to the ARM Membership, AIM Consortium, Department of Defense partners, and other industry leaders.


The Fellowship program is the result of collaboration between the ARM Institute and Department of Defense Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation (OLDCC) (previously called the Office of Economic Adjustment) through the Artificial Intelligence in Metals and Manufacturing (AIM) Higher Defense Industry Consortium led by ARM Member, Catalyst Connection. As such, the proposer and their organization must be dedicated to making a direct impact within the AIM Higher Consortium Defense Manufacturing Community. This area is illustrated by the highlighted counties in Pennsylvania and West Virginia in image to the left. This requirement is detailed in the RFP and will be explored during our webinar.
