Partstack Future Leaders in Engineering Scholarship

Are you a builder?a dreamer?an engineer in the making?

Then our Future Leaders in Engineering Scholarship is just for you! Partstack Corporation is offering up to four (4) $2,500 scholarship awards to students who are interested in pursuing (or currently pursuing) engineering majors (and related sciences majors) at a 2 or 4-year institution.

Our future depends on semiconductors. As America grapples with recent semiconductor microchip shortages, an educated engineering workforce must be ready to meet the challenge. Our Future Leaders in Engineering Scholarship was founded to ensure that the next generation of diverse engineering leadership has an opportunity to pursue higher education to tackle this and other major engineering problems.

Who is eligible

  • Our scholarship is open to all high school seniors, undergraduates, and graduate students who will be/are attending college engineering programs in the United States.
