Hydraulics Scholarship Funds Education for the Incoming Workforce

The Hose Company announces its $1,000 Hydrauli-flex scholarship to assist students in their last year of study in any field that utilizes hydraulic technology. The scholarship supports students who are pursuing an opportunity to participate in the hydraulics’ workforce and studying a discipline that would utilize hydraulics.

“We are pleased to announce this scholarship, which reflects the importance of exploring the use of hydraulics in existing and new technologies” says Robert Smith, Director of Operations of The Hose Company. “The field of hydraulics encompasses the down to earth world of agriculture to the highest levels of space exploration, and we need new ideas and new uses for this technology.”

The scholarship is awarded to students on their essay submission, experience in the field of hydraulics, and recommendations from work, Co-Op, and community sources. The scholarship will be awarded without regard to financial circumstances. However, women in the field and US Veterans will be given priority.

Eligible students are those who are US citizens or in possession of a current student visa, are in good academic standing (3.0 or above), and are in their final year of degree completion at a public or private 4-year institution.

The online application and additional information can be found here. The deadline for applications is June 30, 2017. The award will be announced by July 30, 2017. The $1,000 scholarship will be sent directly to the financial office of the attended institution.
