The Edward J. Dulis Scholarship provides $1,500 towards educational expenses for one academic year. It is awarded to an outstanding undergraduate student at the junior or senior level who demonstrates exemplary academic and personal achievements, interest and potential in metallurgy or materials science and engineering, as well as financial need.
Additionally, Kevin was provided with up to $500.00 for expenses to attend the Materials Science & Technology Conference held October 8-12, 2017, Pittsburgh, PA. There was a special awards presentation at the ASM Leadership Awards Luncheon on Monday, October 9, 2017.
Western Reserve District 5 Science Fair - http://www.uakron.edu/wrsd was held on Saturday, March 17, 2018 at the University of Akron.
