Doosan, Bobcat announce scholarships

Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment (DICE), a global alliance that includes Bobcat compact equipment, and Doosan heavy and portable power equipment brands, has awarded $1,000 scholarships to 20 children of full-time DICE employees in North America. The scholarships go to students who currently attend or plan to attend a two- or four-year college, university or technical school.

Bobcat Company started the scholarship program (now administrated by DICE) more than 30 years ago, and more than 500 scholarships have been awarded since the program’s inception. The scholarship applications were judged on academics; content and clarity of a written essay; honors and participation in school; and community activities. The entries were scored by an independent judge outside of the company.

“We’re happy to recognize these individuals for the work they’ve put into their academic careers so far,” said Martha Bartlett, human resources manager. “We wish them the best of luck in their academic pursuits and future endeavors.”
