Midmark offers scholarships

DAYTON — Midmark Corp., a provider of medical, dental and veterinary equipment solutions, is offering a $20,000 technical scholarship to a graduating high school senior who is a resident of Darke, Miami, Mercer, Auglaize or Shelby County. Eligible seniors must pursue a bachelor’s degree at an accredited four-year university in engineering, including mechanical, electrical, computer, industrial and software or in Computer Information Systems.

This scholarship also offers an opportunity to gain experience. The recipient will intern during summer breaks, beginning in production and gaining more responsibilities each year. After college graduation, the student must commit to at least three years of employment with Midmark. Paid out incrementally throughout a four-year program, the recipient is chosen based on his or her application and interview with an internal panel of Midmark Teammates.

Midmark will break ground later this year for a new, state-of-the-art technology center on its Versailles campus. The scholarship recipient will work in Versailles, where engineering, new product development and other functions reside.

Eligible students should contact their guidance counselor for more information. Scholarship applications are due by Feb. 23.
