CAR students awarded Johnson Controls Endowed Scholarship
Congratulations to Mason Hayes, a member of the Buckeye Current team as well as Kerri Loyd, a member of the EcoCAR team who have been awarded the Johnson Controls Endowed Scholarship for the 2016-2017 academic year.
“Being one of the recipients of this award is humbling because I was nominated by one of my Buckeye Current teammates,” said Hayes who plans on majoring in environmental engineering. “As a part of this incredible team, being recognized as an individual is more than I could ask. On top of that, being able to reduce my tuition cost, as an out of state student, is tremendously helpful.”
The Johnson Controls Inc. Endowed Scholarship is awarded to two OSU-CAR Motorsports students and two College of Engineering students whose studies focus on energy efficiency and energy storage.
“I am incredibly grateful to have been selected as a recipient of the Johnson Controls Endowed Scholarship this year,” said Loyd. “Coming from a middle class family, I have always had to work hard to be able to support my financial needs in order to continue my education. Being awarded this scholarship takes a little bit of the financial burden off my shoulders and will allow me to put all of my focus towards receiving my bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. The lessened financial burden will also allow me to put more focus on the project teams and groups that I am a part of including the Humanitarian Engineering Scholar's group, Design for 90 and the EcoCAR 3 team.”
