ASABE–CNH Industrial Scholarships Awarded to Four Undergraduates

ASABE is pleased to announce the four winners of the ASABE–CNH Industrial Undergraduate Scholarship. The students each will receive a scholarship worth $2500 to use toward their degrees in agricultural and biological engineering and related fields.

Natalie Larsson, Blacksburg, Virginia, a junior in biological systems engineering at Virginia Tech University

Katherine Skiles, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, a junior in biological engineering at the University of Arkansas

Carter West, Charles City, Iowa, a senior in agricultural engineering at Iowa State University

Jarvis Williams, Chicago, Illinois, a sophomore pursuing a degree in technical systems management/engineering technology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Students were judged, in part, on responses to questions about the shared values of ASABE and CNH Industrial, and many pointed to the constant drive toward technology innovation within the context of sustainability. "Both organizations strive to find long-term, adaptable solutions which bridge the gap between global challenges and consumer needs," wrote Katherine Skiles.

"Our undergraduate members represent the future of the profession and will soon be making their individual and substantial contributions to a sustainable bioeconomy," says Darrin Drollinger, executive director of ASABE. "CNH Industrial has been a valued partner in developing that workforce pipeline, particularly through innovative collaborations that encourage and support its emerging leaders.”

The scholarships were made possible by the generous support of CNH Industrial, a world-class equipment and services company that sustainably advances the noble work of agricultural and construction workers.

ASABE is an international educational organization dedicated to the advancement of engineering applicable to agricultural, food, and biological systems.
