The manufacturing sector continues to support the students who will be a vital part of their future workforces. The Ohio State University at Lima has announced the P&G Scholarship for Ohio State Lima. 

The fund provides tuition scholarships for undergraduate students who are enrolled at Ohio State Lima in the engineering technology major and who actively contribute to nurturing a more diverse community. The $32,000 gift from P&G combined with funds from a matching program supports four, full-tuition scholarships for the next academic year.

“The P&G Lima Plant has been a part of the Lima community for 55 years and we are proud to partner with organizations like The Ohio State University for the betterment of our region,” said Procter & Gamble Lima Plant Manager Gabriele Pacciarotti. “Educational institutions like Ohio State are critical to develop a diverse and inclusive workforce now and for generations to come. We are very proud to support engineering technology students at The Ohio State University at Lima.”

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology responds to Ohio manufacturers’ requests for highly skilled engineers who possess general manufacturing engineering technology skills that marry business and leadership principles to engineering processes and technical knowledge.

This evidence-based, interdisciplinary program offers students the opportunity to connect their hands and heads. It is available only at Ohio State’s regional campuses through a special relationship with the College of Engineering. This program meets the outcomes of the Accreditation Board for Engineering Technology and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers.

“Students are looking for opportunities that give them the access to higher education,” said Senior Vice Provost for External Engagement Ryan Schmiesing. “Students can come here, they can be close to home. They can be in a community environment that they’re used to and get a world-class education in a world-class facility with world-class partners. And then hopefully do internships and have those types of experiences as part of their coursework, allow them to then seek employment and stay in the community if that is what they want to do.”
