Scholarships set students on path to manufacturing careers

Honeywell is putting 20 recent high school graduates on the path to rewarding careers in manufacturing through the Honeywell Opportunity for Prosperity through Education (HOPE) Scholarship program.

 Now in its second year, the HOPE Scholarship program was extended to the Albuquerque area in a new partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of

Central New Mexico. After a robust scholarship review process that included interviews with finalists, two students from the Albuquerque area were selected in addition to 18 Kansas City area students.

 In addition to financial assistance, the students will be matched with a Honeywell mentor to help with career exploration. The goal of the HOPE Scholarship program is to build a pipeline of highly skilled workers for manufacturing positions at the KCNSC.

 Last year, we awarded the first three HOPE Scholarships to students from Grandview High School. Dylan Hernandez, our first full-ride recipient, is joining Honeywell this summer as an intern. When he graduates next year, he is interested in pursuing a career in modeling and simulation.
