Kennametal Foundation Announces Scholarship Winners

LATROBE, Pa., May 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Kennametal Foundation today announced the winners of the 2013 Kennametal Foundation Scholarships.  Each winner is provided a $2,000 award renewable for up to four years of college undergraduate study that can be used at any accredited U.S. college or university of the student's choice. 

"We are pleased to offer scholarships to these capable students, and wish them continued success in their academic careers," said Kennametal Chairman, President and CEO Carlos Cardoso. "We have proudly offered scholarships to children of employees here in the U.S. for 28 years, and it is just one of the many ways we support education. Globally, our foundation provides scholarship grants and funding supporting technical education across a network of institutions providing advanced education and training in material science, engineering and business disciplines. These investments are vital to the future of manufacturing, and they demonstrate our commitment to being the employer of choice for the best people."

The Kennametal Foundation is pleased to partner with the National Merit Scholarship Corporation in administering this program.  The Kennametal Foundation Scholarship applications are reviewed by an impartial group from The National Merit Scholarship Corporation that reviews an applicant's academic record, qualities of leadership, extracurricular activities, PSAT scores and school recommendations.  Established in 1955, the National Merit Scholarship is a not-for-profit organization that operates without government assistance.  The majority of National Merit Scholarships offered each year are underwritten by some 500 independent corporate and college sponsors that support National Merit Scholarship Corporation's efforts to honor the nation's scholastic talent and encourage academic excellence at all levels of education.
