Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology and The Boeing Company are pleased to announce the 2012-2013 recipients of the Boeing BOLD Scholarship program. The program offers a unique opportunity for students to receive assistance and mentoring from Boeing to become the next leaders in the global workforce. Ten Parks College students earned 2012-2013 scholarships in the Boeing Opportunity for Leadership Development (BOLD) program.
“The Boeing BOLD scholarship and its recipients are one of the many strands that link our educational programs to marketable and business relevant degrees,” said Theodosios Alexander, Sc.D., dean of Parks College. “This kind of partnership with industry and students is an essential element in the pursuit of educational excellence, and for identifying those students who are likely to be among the leaders of tomorrow.”
BOLD scholarships are presented to students who maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2; major in either business, engineering, mathematics or computer science; and declare a secondary major, minor or certificate in another of those four areas.
Scholarship recipients also must have the potential to make a significant contribution to the University’s goal of providing a culturally, professionally and ethnically diverse learning environment. Several past recipients have gone on to become Boeing employees.
