Nobis Group recently awarded scholarships to three 2020 high school graduates. Now in its second year, the Nobis scholarship program was developed to further the company’s dedication to promoting Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields to high school students. The scholarship is awarded to graduating high school seniors in New Hampshire and Massachusetts who have demonstrated an interest and are pursuing further education in STEM fields at a college, university, or trade school.
2020 Nobis Group STEM Scholarship recipients include New Hampshire students Jessica Janinda of Hopkinton High School and Alexandra Topic of Manchester Central High School and Massachusetts student Helena Koch of Groton-Dunstable Regional High School. Janinda, Topic, and Koch are pursuing higher education in the fields of Biology & Human Science, Computer Science & Mathematics, and Mechanical Engineering, respectively.
Scholarship applications, essays, and transcripts are evaluated by an internal committee at Nobis comprised of scientists, engineers, and administrative professionals who are tasked with selecting students who best demonstrate a passion for STEM. This year the firm received 55 applications – nearly four times as many as were received in 2019 – and increased the number of awards from two students in its first year to three this year.
