Honeywell recently announced a scholarship to help energize Houston Independent School District students about pursuing careers in engineering.
In addition to financial assistance, the Honeywell Engineer of the Future Scholarship program aims to show students that engineers will play a vital role in making the world more environmentally sustainable.
“Many people equate fields like chemical engineering to older industries such as the hydrocarbon industry, but the fact is, this planet needs engineers to create and drive new industries that will help to save our environment,” according to Norm Gilsdorf, president of Honeywell’s Process Solutions (HPS) division.
The $2,500 scholarship will be open to all high school seniors in the Houston Independent School District and be paid to the winner’s engineering school for the 2011-2012 school year. Students must write a personal essay discussing how they would use an engineering career to make the world a better place and more sustainable.
