are offering 2 scholarships per year to 3rd and 4th year undergrad students in engineering and science. Note that the first scholarship’s open period is next month. The 2nd one (winter award) will likely be targeted to work study or design project related efforts. We will be ferreting out those ideas over the next couple of months. I would guess that this will morph in a number of ways over time as we bring in industry partners, etc. We will work on the timing of this going forward as well.
Also to verify, in the spirit of maintaining fair and equitable approach, our only administrative requirement for the schools is that this is posted on a web page that is accessible to any student who would be interested. Beyond that, it’s up to the school re: how to get the word out. Also, in addition to maintaining a level playing field, the ability to show our potential industry partners where it’s posted on the participating schools’ websites will help make it more concrete, and consequently easier to bring them on board and garner more funds for the scholarships going forward (the “build it and they will come” approach).
