Kelly Engineering Resources offers $5,000 Future Engineers Scholarship

To support the efforts of the future workforce, Kelly Engineering Resources, a business unit of global staffing provider Kelly Services, Inc., is now accepting entries for its third annual Future Engineers Scholarship program, which recognizes exceptional engineering students throughout the nation.

Kelly Engineering Resources created the Future Engineers Scholarship program to encourage student interest in a career in engineering, to foster excellence in the engineering field and to help alleviate a critical current and future shortage of highly qualified engineers.

Partners of the 2005-2006 program with Kelly Engineering Resources include the Engineering Society of Detroit, Society of Manufacturing Engineers, Chemical Processing magazine, Power Engineering magazine, and Nuclear News.

All sophomore- and junior-level college engineering students who meet the program criteria are invited to compete for the scholarship by submitting essays on contemporary engineering topics.  Candidates will be evaluated on their demonstrated potential for and commitment to a career in engineering, outstanding academic performance and depth of knowledge about the issue or challenge addressed in the essay.

In December 2005, the student with the winning essay will be presented a $5,000 scholarship, which may be used toward eligible expenses for tuition, fees, books and room and board during the 2006 calendar year.

Submission materials, guidelines and essay questions are available at www.kellyengineering.com.  Kelly Engineering Resources must receive applications for the scholarship no later than June 30, 2005.
