Humantech Supports Ergonomics Scholarship Program

Humantech Inc. has reaffirmed its commitment to assist students in the pursuit of ergonomics-related education with the 2008-2009 ergonomics college scholarship program. Through the program, a $1,500 scholarship in each of three degree programs –undergraduate (junior and senior only), masters and doctorate – will be awarded this fall.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to make a difference in the education of emerging thought leaders pursuing studies in ergonomics-related fields,” says Josh Kerst, Humantech vice president. “This year, we’ve defined the program even further to recognize students at the undergraduate, masters and doctorate levels.”
Scholarship applicants must be pursuing degrees in ergonomics, human factors, kinesiology, human kinetics, industrial engineering or a related field; demonstrate a passion for advancing the field of ergonomics; have a strong academic background; and supply an example of an original project or unique practical application in ergonomics.

Applications may be submitted online only, and the deadline for all entries is Oct. 1. A panel of Humantech's ergonomics professionals will evaluate the entries and award the scholarships by Nov. 30.
