Undergraduate in Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Wins $3K Scholarship

Congratulations to undergraduate Dora Richardson, who won the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering’s 2018 Logistics and Distribution Scholarship. The $3,000 scholarship is funded by FedEx and is awarded annually to a full-time undergraduate pursuing industrial and manufacturing engineering. To date, the scholarship has awarded five students a total of $15,000.

“Receiving the scholarship will allow me to spend more time on homework and classwork instead of having to work extra hours to pay for school,” said Richardson. “Long term, I hope to work in the food industry to prevent cross contamination of allergens during production.”

A major aspect of food production is the logistics of the flow of raw ingredients and finished goods, she said.

The department presented Richardson with the scholarship on May 9 during their Industry Advisory Board meeting.
