Robbie and Gina Gilchrist established the Gilchrist Foundation Fastener Scholarship in 2000. Their goal was to return something to an industry that was very good and supportive to them. The Gilchrist Foundation invites any person wanting to further their education to apply for the scholarships. Applicants can be full time or part time students working in the industry or children of working fastener people.

Since the inception of the Foundation, there have been 58 recipients of scholarships.
