Penn College Students Earn Scholarships From National Foundation


Five students from Pennsylvania College of Technology are among 28 nationwide to receive scholarships from a foundation dedicated to manufacturing careers.

The $1,500 to $2,500 scholarships from Nuts, Bolts & Thingamajigs, the foundation of Fabricators & Manufacturers Association International, are for full-time students enrolled in an engineering or manufacturing-related course of study.

The Penn College recipients are welding and fabrication engineering technology majors Erin M. Beaver, of Winfield; Maria C. Cantin, of Livonia, Michigan; and Robert A. Staudigel, of East Northport, New York; automated manufacturing technology major John Provenza Jr., of Marysville; and electronics and computer engineering technology major Norman C. Sabin Jr., of Williamsport.

Scholarship applicants had to submit academic records and a description of their major.

“We are pleased that our students are being recognized for their pursuit of rewarding careers in manufacturing,” said David R. Cotner, dean of industrial, computing and engineering technologies. “Penn College had more scholarship recipients than any other institution. That fact is a very positive reflection on our manufacturing-related majors.”

In addition to their monetary reward, scholarship winners are receiving a Student Design Kit CAD software package from SolidWorks Corp.
