Two students in the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology program at The Ohio State University at Mansfield have been awarded Choose Ohio First Scholarships to help offset the costs of earning their degrees in the high-demand field of engineering.
The scholarship has been awarded for autumn semester 2021 and will provide each awardee with more than $3,777 for this academic year to use toward completing the bachelor’s degree program.
For the 2022 academic year, students from the Lima, Marion and Mansfield campuses will split more than $30,000 in scholarship funding. The scholarship recipients will work together as part of a multi-campus cohort and receive advising, mentoring, internship opportunities, cohort professional development seminars and events. The award is renewable for all four years of the students’ academic career with satisfactory academic performance.
Scholarship recipients will engage in industry- or peer-mentoring or tutoring, help recruiters promote the engineering technology program to prospective students, attend and present on the student experience to the industry advisory board, participate in the annual State of Ohio Choose Ohio First Showcase, and become involved in professional organizations.
The engineering technology major launched in autumn 2020 on three of the university’s regional campuses, including Ohio State Mansfield. The program is designed to meet the needs of industry and focuses on manufacturing leadership development. Engineering technology students receive hands-on experience and receive mentoring from manufacturing leaders.
Led and funded by the Ohio Department of Higher Education, the Choose Ohio First Scholarship Program is part of Ohio’s strategic effort to bolster the state in the global marketplace of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine, or STEMM. Choose Ohio First awards competitive scholarship funding to Ohio’s colleges and universities to support undergraduate and qualifying graduate students in innovative academic programs.
