Exlar CTO Bill Zerull stated, “With continued demands on technology for higher levels of productivity, safety and energy efficiency, having the engineering skills to design, develop and integrate these technologies is critical for both manufacturers and for the individuals coming into the workforce. By making these scholarships available, we see it as an investment for the future for the company, the community and the country.”

Director of Human Resources Kim Hidy added, “These scholarships are starting to pay real dividends as many of our scholarship recipients become Exlar interns, which benefits both the company and the student as they gain applicable, real world experience.
