Company Offers Industrial Engineering Scholarships

ASCO Numatics of Florham Park, N.J., will award two $5,000 scholarships to U.S. engineering students who are pursuing careers in industrial automation-related disciplines. Additionally, the company will make $1,000 grants to the engineering departments of the colleges in which the winners are enrolled.

"Fluid control and fluid power technology will play a vital role in helping companies meet the dynamic business conditions of tomorrow's global markets. This work will require a new generation of engineering leaders with the skills and expertise to create advanced automation processes," said Bob Kemple, executive vice president of sales and marketing, ASCO Numatics- Americas. "We have implemented the scholarship program to recognize and assist students who show great potential and capability to solve tomorrow's industrial processing challenges."

The scholarships are merit-based and will be awarded on the candidate's potential for leadership and for making a significant contribution to the engineering, instrumentation, systems, electrical, mechanical, and automation professions, particularly as they relate to the application of fluid control and fluid power technology. A panel of ASCO Numatics and independent judges will select the finalists.

Applicants must be enrolled full-time in an undergraduate or graduate program in an instrumentation, systems, electrical, mechanical, or automation discipline at an accredited U.S. educational institution for the 2008/2009 academic year. At the time of application, they must have completed at least their sophomore year in a bachelor's degree program, have at least a 3.2 GPA on a 4.0 scale, and be a U.S. citizen or legal U.S. resident.
