Monolithic microwave integrated circuit developer Custom MMIC of Westford, MA, USA has awarded its inaugural ‘Women In Engineering’ scholarships, which were launched in spring - in partnership with the Greater Lowell Community Foundation - to provide full tuition and fees for undergraduate engineering degrees to three young female graduates of either Groton-Dunstable High School in Groton, MA or Westford Academy in Westford, MA. After receiving 11 outstanding applications for the award, and due to the quality of applicants, it has been decided to expand the scope of the scholarship.

Emma Fournier of Groton, MA (who will attend Tulane University to study Chemical Engineering) was awarded the full scholarship totaling about $112,000 over four years. Grace Remillard of Groton, MA (who will attend the University of Massachusetts Lowell to study Electrical Engineering) and Sarah McKinley of Westford, MA (who will attend Clarkson University to study Mechanical Engineering) were each awarded partial scholarships totaling $40,000 over four years.

“This has been a dream of mine for a few years now,” says Custom MMIC’s president & CEO Paul Blount. “The three women chosen were impressive in their past accomplishments and future goals,” he adds. “We are also fortunate to have the Greater Lowell Community Foundation as our partner, for the logistical support they provide is a major reason we can offer these scholarships. We look forward to working with them for many years to come.”

The firm plans to offer the scholarship again next spring, and will likely increase the application pool to include other nearby towns.
