ASCO Numatics to Provide Automation Scholarship

ASCO Numatics, a manufacturer of comprehensive fluid automation solutions, flow control, and pneumatics, on Feb. 3 announced the beginning of the 2009/2010 academic year application period for two $5,000 scholarships available to U.S. engineering students pursuing careers in industrial automation-related disciplines.

The company also will make $1,000 grants to the engineering departments of the colleges in which the winners are enrolled.

"ASCO Numatics started the scholarship program to help identify and encourage the next generation of leaders in the engineering industry," said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, Sales and Marketing - Americas. "We were very impressed by the quality and enthusiasm of last year's applicant pool. We are excited to continue this program throughout 2009 and expect the same high-quality applicants and talented winners."

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 engineering, instrumentation, systems, electrical, mechanical, or automation discipline at an accredited U.S. educational institution for the 2009/2010 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. Complete application details and forms are available at www.asconumatics.com/scholarship.

The company will present the scholarship awards at the 2009 ISA Expo, Oct. 6 - 8, at the Reliant Center in Houston.
