MANITOWOC (WLUK) -- A new scholarship aims to help Manitowoc County students aspiring to become engineers.
The Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry (WAF), with support of the Schwartz family, has donated $100,000 to create the Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry Engineering Scholarship fund through the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay Foundation.
“We’re thrilled to help the next generation realize the opportunities available in the manufacturing industry,” said Berel Lutsky, WAF board member and a Professor of Arts at the UWGB-Manitowoc campus. “The foundry’s success is due to the hard work and dedication of its team members, the community and surrounding area. This is an opportunity for us to invest in the future of our region.”
To be eligible for this scholarship, recipients must be a graduate of a high school in Manitowoc County, must major in either Mechanical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering Technology, must be admitted to the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay as a degree-seeking undergraduate student and must demonstrate financial need.
(Note: the last paragraph was corrected to show the majors need to be in mechanical engineering technology or mechanical engineering.)
