Welcome To the Dearborn Foundation

A scholarship foundation for students majoring in physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and nuclear engineering.

We also offer scholarships for Precision Machining.


   The Dearborn Foundation was created in March of 1993 by Howard K. Dearborn, a successful businessman for over fifty years, to award scholarships to outstanding students in the fields of engineering and precision machining. Mr. Dearborn (1918-2013) generously donated over a million dollars and arranged for the Foundation and Scholarship program to continue for many more years. Scholarships are available to qualifying United States citizens for education, research and experimentation.
