Doosan and Bobcat announce 2011 – 2012 scholarship recipients

Doosan Infracore Construction Equipment (DICE) — a global alliance that includes the Bobcat® compact equipment, and Doosan heavy and portable power equipment brands — has awarded $1,000 scholarships to 20 children of full-time DICE employees in North America. The scholarships go to students who currently attend or plan to attend a two- or four-year college or university, or technical school.

Bobcat Company started the scholarship program (now administrated by DICE) more than 30 years ago, and over 500 scholarships have been awarded since the program’s inception. The scholarship applications were judged on academics; content and clarity of a written essay; honors and participation in school; and community activities. The entries were scored by an independent judge outside of the company.

“This is another exceptional group of young men and women,” said Nikki Bruce, communications manager for DICE. “We are thrilled to congratulate and reward them for what they’ve already accomplished, and we look forward to watching them progress as future leaders in whatever careers they choose.”
