West Fargo - 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.
"These individuals have already accomplished a great deal in their young lives, and we're happy to recognize them for their hard work," said Tina Amerman, director Human Resources, North America for DICE. "They'll all go on to be successful in whatever they do."
