CEDAR RAPIDS, IA--In partnership with the NSCA Education Foundation, Bosch Communications Systems will offer two $2,500 scholarships this year in memory of Robert Bosch. In 1886, Robert Bosch founded the "Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering" in Stuttgart. This was the birth of today's globally active Robert Bosch GmbH. From the very beginning, the company's history has been characterized by innovative drive and social commitment. In addition to these scholarships, Bosch renewed its commitment to the NSCA Education Foundation President's Club, which will endow a portion of its future scholarship contributions.
"Bosch's great history of philanthropic efforts is an extension of those core values within our own professional audio industry" said Tom Hansen, vice president, Americas Bosch Communications Systems. "The NSCA Education Foundation has its finger on the pulse of our industry and forward-looking view on education. This fits well with Bosch's core philosophies and values. Education is key to the growth of our industry. "
"The NSCA Foundation greatly appreciates Bosch's continued investment in this critical aspect of the industry's future" said Tom Frericks, president of the NSCA Education Foundation. "Bosch is doing its part to educate future technicians and designers of electronic systems; this is another example of their forward-thinking philosophy."
