"I am getting an outstanding education from Colorado School of Mines. It is a first-class engineering school, with low student to teacher ratios to help me become an exceptional engineer. However, for an out-of-state student, this school is extremely expensive. This scholarship from ASCO Numatics would assist me with tuition so I can pursue my dream of automating system to assist people."
Nick is a senior at The University of Kentucky studying for a bachelor's degree in electrical and computer engineering. He maintains a 3.84 GPA and has held internships at companies such as Duke Energy and Cincinnati Bell Technology.

"This award would be the support I need to continue my development of a truly global understanding of the renewable energy industry. In a field dependent entirely on adaptation to a given environment, I believe the top contributors will be the engineers with the best ability to take a creative solution from another environment and mold it to fit the local needs."
