Two students receive FPEF scholarships

Two students enrolled at the Purdue Polytechnic Institute at Kokomo received scholarships from the Fluid Power Educational Foundation (FPEF) Board of Trustees.

Andrew Bachman of Greentown, Indiana, and Eric Scherer of Cicero, Indiana, each were awarded $2,000 scholarships. Of the 20 scholarships recipients, Bachman and Scherer were in the top eight who received further distinction.

Bachman received the Richard Bardos Memorial Scholarship, and Scherer received the FPEF scholarship underwritten by IMI-Precision Engineering-Norgren.

A minimum GPA, an essay, and three letters of recommendation were required from each applicant.

Patrick J. Maluso, FPEF chair, said, “Our goal is to help young people enrolled in high schools, technical colleges and engineering schools pursue their interests in fluid power.”
