Four Pennsylvania College of Technology students are among 14 individuals nationwide to receive scholarships from a foundation dedicated to promoting skilled manufacturing careers. The $1,500 to $2,500 scholarships from Nuts, Bolts & Thingamajigs, the foundation of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association International, are for full-time students enrolled in an engineering or manufacturing-related course of study.
The Penn College recipients are automated manufacturing technology students Tyler J. Bandle of Slatington; John A. Provenza Jr. of Marysville; Sean A. Bush of Williamsport, an electrical technology major; and Cinnamon A. Digan of Mifflinburg, majoring in welding and fabrication engineering technology.
Applicants were required to submit their academic records and a description of their major.
“We are proud to have several of our students recognized for their pursuit of very rewarding manufacturing-related careers,” said Bradley M. Webb, dean of industrial, computing, and engineering technologies. “It’s a testament to the quality of our students and academic programs that Penn College had more scholarship recipients than any other institution.”
In addition to the monetary award, scholarship winners received a Student Design Kit CAD software package from Solidworks Corp.
