Northrop Grumman Corp. has organized activities in its Azusa, CA., campus to conclude the ninth consecutive year of an academic cause that aims to support the interest of students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Participants who complete the High School Involvement Partnership program qualify for a four-year partial scholarship grant for technical degrees at a college or university, Northrop said Monday.
The recent contest that involved Northrop mentors and students from Azusa and Gladstone high schools was followed by a banquet that honored 2013 Northrop Grumman Engineering Scholars Lucas Del Toro and Chandler Woo.
Stephen J. Toner, Northrop Electronic Systems’ military and civil space vice president, said the HIP program seeks to train students on different engineering and design principles that they can apply to develop future products.
Northrop says students eligible for the scholarship need to have at least 3.0 grade point average and be enrolled full-time to an accredited course in computer science, engineering, math or physics.
