B+B Smartworx Scholarship for Engineering, Science and Technology

The B+B SmartWorx Scholarship was established for two high school graduating seniors who will pursue a career in science, technology or engineering. A $1,500 scholarship will be awarded to one male and one female in Starved Rock Country pursuing a degree from an accredited, degree granting college or university with a focus on the Internet of Things (IoT).

For more than 30 years B+B SmartWorx has been a company that designs, engineers and manufactures network connectivity equipment for rugged and remote conditions. The emergence of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has completely transformed data networking-B+B SmartWorx, formerly B&B Electronics, responded with its own company transformation. A critical part of that transformation was the development of advanced IoT technologies. With the capability of integrating existing equipment and network technologies, B+B SmartWorx products enable networks to adapt and evolve into more autonomous, smarter, responsive and decisive systems.

"The B+B SmartWorx Scholarships are highly sought-after and always bring the most applicants to any of our scholarships. Our Scholarship Selection Committee evaluates the applicants without identifying information, so that their selections are not prejudicial. The Committee always has a tough time selecting the winners because of the number of highly qualified and simply brilliant students who apply." - Pamela Beckett, Founder, SRCCF
