NASHUA – New Hampshire students interested in pursuing a career in engineering will soon be eligible for the Norman F. and Marilyn W. Jones Scholarship Fund, a new fund through the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. Founded in 1962, the organization is recognized as New Hampshire’s statewide community foundation.

The fund will give over $100,000 every year to New Hampshire engineering students. Students in electrical, aeronautical and mechanical engineering or any other related fields, and who are rising sophomores, juniors or seniors are eligible to apply for the scholarship fund. The fund aims to help students continue exploring their interests in the engineering field.

The fund will support various scholarships in different amounts, based on the number of applicants and the winners’ financial needs. Students will be considered based on their “academic excellence, leadership potential, passion for the field and financial need.” A team of professionals from the industry will be interviewing finalists. These students will have to prepare a presentation for their interviews.

Those who have a passion for engineering and are interested in applying can complete an online application through the New Hampshire Charitable Foundations scholarship application portal at https://nhcf.scholarships.ngwebsolutions.com/CMXAdmin/Cmx_Content.aspx?cpId=63.

Applications will stay open until 5 p.m. on April 12.

The foundation notes that eligible students will automatically be identified and will be considered for the foundation’s other scholarships. The organization is currently offering almost 400 scholarship funds and proudly notes they work with generous and visionary residents to maximize the power of their giving, support great work happening in their communities and lead and collaborate on high-impact initiatives.
