2009 Industrial Automation Engineering Scholarship applications available

ASCO Numatics begins taking applications.

03/12/2009


ASCO Numatics has 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. ASCO Numatics will also make $1,000 grants to the engineering departments of the colleges in which the winners are enrolled.
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.
ASCO Numatics will present the scholarship awards at the 2009 ISA Expo , October 6 - 8, 2009 at the Reliant Center in Houston. The award presentation will be part of the annual ISA Young Automation Professionals Festival (YAPFEST).
Robert W. Kemple, Jr., the company’s executive vice president of sales and marketing, said, "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."
Formed by the merger of ASCO and Numatics, ASCO Numatics is a business unit of Emerson Industrial Automation.
