Proceeds from the Annual Calibration Exchange combined with large contribution from the ISA New Orleans Section create a new scholarship fund
New Orleans, Louisiana (09 October 2019) - Late last month, a scholarship totaling $25,000 was created for the University of New Orleans Engineering Program, funded by proceeds from the Beamex Annual Calibration Exchange and the ISA New Orleans Section.
The original scholarship amount from Beamex and the ISA Foundation was estimated to be $15,000. During the check presentation, the ISA New Orleans Section announced it would add $10,000 to create a $25,000 endowment. This endowment will generate a perpetual scholarship with award to a deserving engineering student annually.
"This donation will do a lot of good for the students for a long time," explains Dean Bickerton, President of the ISA New Orleans Section.
Beamex is delighted to give back to future automation professionals and make a bigger impact through a partnership with the ISA New Orleans Section. The stories of the students who are selected as scholarship recipients in the coming years will be followed and shared.
"We are very grateful to have Beamex and ISA's support to establish an endowed scholarship within the University's College of Engineering," states Eric Balukonis, Major Gifts and Planned Giving Officer, University of New Orleans.
