Learn and Earn with Maintenance Apprentice Opportunities

Mennel’s Apprenticeship Program is ideal for high school or community college/tech school graduates who reside in or adjacent to the counties in which Mennel operates.

On-the-job training and job shadowing responsibilities are key benefits of Mennel's accredited program. Apprentices work full time at an assigned Mennel facility gaining real-world, practical experience.

And the best part … Mennel pays the apprentice’s salary as well as schooling fees; however, the employee is required to pass all coursework with a letter grade of “C” or better.

Maintenance Apprenticeship: Candidates will spend the first year in core curriculum classes with a focus on electrical and fundamentals of the maintenance department. Year two will include advanced electrical and welding courses.

Learn and Earn with Internship Opportunities

Mennel’s Internship Program is conducted over a 90-day period at one of our many sites. Interns will be selected to participate as part of an application and interview process. A work schedule will be developed and tailored to meet your needs and interests, and includes diverse experience across all functions of the organization. You will not only observe work being done in those areas, but will complete the work themselves to ensure a “hands-on” experience. Our program will allow you to gain experience along with a better understanding of a possible career path within our company.

Learn and Earn with Mennel's Milling Science and Management Scholarship

We are excited to announce changes to Kansas State University’s (KSU) Non-resident Scholarship offerings that fit very nicely with our Mennel scholarship at KSU.

The Non-Resident Wildcat Award benefits Grain Science & Industry (GSI) recruitment at KSU for incoming freshman as well as transfer student enrollment. Mennel offers scholarships to GSI students, and working together we can assist with recruitment of future students from Mennel’s operating states - MI, OH, IN, IL, VA, and NC.

The KSU Wildcat Nonresident award is a unique scholarship that provides students with the opportunity to have a percentage of their out-of-state tuition reduced based on their incoming GPA. For example, if the student has a 3.9 or higher GPA, they would be eligible to receive in-state tuition as if they were from Kansas. If awarded the scholarship, students can renew the award for up to three years - four years total.

It’s important to note that coupled with our Mennel scholarship, a student that meets the criteria for the non-resident award could go to school at KSU on a full-ride, or close to it. This was the case for our 2023 Mennel / KSU Scholarship recipient, Andrew Friend, who will be completing an internship with us in Fostoria this summer.

To learn more and/or complete an application for the award, please click on the link to the KSU Financial Aid website here. Additional information about the KSU Wildcat Non-resident Transfer and Non-resident Freshman award can be found by clicking on the links provided here. Contact Dave Marty, VP of Operations, for more information.
