Two $5,000 scholarships are available to U.S. engineering students pursuing careers in industrial automation-related disciplines from Asco Numatics, Florham Park, N.J. The manufacturer of fluid automation solutions also will make $1,000 grants to the engineering departments of the colleges in which the winners are enrolled.

"The Asco Numatics scholarship program is now entering its third year, and we continue to be impressed by the caliber of the applicants and the winners," says Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing - Americas. "It is especially great to see so much talent looking to enter the industrial automation field. We look forward to a large and similarly talented application pool this year and wish them all the best of luck."

The scholarships are merit based and will be awarded on the candidate's potential for leadership and for making a significant contribution to the engineering, instrumentation, systems, electrical, mechanical and automation professions, particularly as they relate to the application of fluid control and fluid power technology. A panel of Asco Numatics' and independent judges will select the finalists.

Only full-time students are eligible, and applications must be received by June 30, 2010. For complete omplete application details and forms, visit
