The James F. Lincoln Foundation

Advocates for Arc Welding Careers and Education

Whether you’re a high school or post-secondary student, instructor or welding professional, continual education plays an essential role in professional development and elevating the skill of arc welding.

The James F. Lincoln Foundation is a non-profit welding education organization founded in 1936, when the arc welding industry was in its infancy. The JFLF is the only organization in the United States dedicated to disseminating arc welding information, educating students of all levels on the art and science of arc welding, encouraging them to pursue welding careers and granting cash awards to recognize technical achievements in welding projects.
