Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment (DICE) - a global alliance that includes the 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, including Allison Klug of West Fargo, a student at Concordia College, Moorhead.
The scholarships go to students who currently attend or plan to attend a two-year or four-year university, college or technical school.
Bobcat Company started the scholarship program more than 30 years ago and has awarded over 500 scholarships 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 are thrilled to help these students as they pursue higher education and careers in various fields," said Scott Roy, interim head of Human Resources. "All of these individuals have shown a great deal of leadership and potential, and we believe they should be rewarded and encouraged to continue progressing on whatever path they choose."
