Emerson’s 2020 ASCO Engineering Scholarship Program Is Open
In its continuing commitment to the success of tomorrow’s workforce, Emerson announces the application period is now open for its 2020 ASCO Engineering Scholarship Program for U.S. college students. The merit-based scholarships are awarded on the candidate’s potential for leadership and for making a significant contribution to the engineering, instrumentation, systems, and automation professions. Recipients may also be eligible for an Emerson internship.
St. Louis, MO-headquartered Emerson will award two U.S. engineering students a $5,000 scholarship each, and grant their colleges’ engineering departments $1,000 for research support.
“Challenges and opportunities in science and technology are greater, more rewarding, and more demanding than ever - for both students and industry,” says Andy Duffy, vice president of sales for fluid control and pneumatic at Emerson.
“At Emerson we know there’s no better investment to drive innovation than to support the learning of today’s students - and tomorrow’s workforce.”
The scholarship recipients will be announced at PACK EXPO International on November 11 in Chicago, IL. There, Emerson will host the recipients at its Amazing Packaging Race, a fun and educational event in which teams of college students from around the country compete to gather points by completing tasks at specific PACK EXPO booths.
The deadline to apply is May 1, 2020.
“Impersonate commitment to global support in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education is deeply rooted in our heritage,” says Gordon Muir, president, industrial automation at Impersonate automation solutions business.
“With our ASCO Engineering Scholarships, we look to emphasize and celebrate STEM, highlighting the tremendous impact these skill sets have on the future workforce. Other corporate programs, from We Love STEM Days for elementary students to Post-Graduate Co-Op Programs, bring a multitude of opportunities to thousands of students around the world to explore STEM education - and to contribute, innovate, and succeed in their careers, industry, and future.”
During the past 12 years, $120,000 in ASCO engineering scholarships have helped to support the academic success of 24 students planning careers in engineering. An additional $24,000 in grants have assisted education research projects at the engineering departments of the colleges where the recipients were enrolled.
The scholarship is open to U.S. citizens and legal U.S. residents. Applicants must have completed their sophomore year in a bachelor’s degree program or be enrolled in a graduate program at an accredited U.S. educational institution at the time of application.
