"I was really excited when I first heard that I had won the scholarship, and the opportunity to fly to Las Vegas to accept the honor and meet some of the staff made it that much better. In addition to the various products I saw in action, I was very impressed with the generosity and hospitality that I received from the entire ASCO Numatics team. However, what impressed me most of all was the obvious commitment to developing the next generation of engineers. Thank you so much."

"After winning the scholarship, it was clear to me that ASCO Numatics wants to make it clear that they are in support of the next generation of engineering and automation scholars. I have never experienced such a huge amount of generosity in such a short period of time. From the time when ASCO Numatics revealed to me that I won, to the trip to Las Vegas to enjoy myself and connect with ASCO Numatics and other companies and people, down to the plane ride home, I was truly astonished. Thank you so much for supporting me in my studies!"
