MIDDLETOWN, RI – April 3, 2008 – KVH Industries, Inc., relies on the innovation and skill of its engineers to develop award-winning, industry-leading products for markets and customers worldwide. Thanks to their efforts, KVH is a leading source for mobile satellite TV and broadband communication systems, along with defense and commercial guidance and stabilization solutions. In recognition of the importance engineers play in the current and future success of the company, KVH is pleased to launch its Technology Scholars Program. This annual scholarship will be awarded to a deserving high school senior who will be attending a 4-year undergraduate math or engineering program the following fall.
“As a high-tech company founded in Newport and headquartered in Middletown, our deep roots on Aquidneck Island have forged a commitment to support our community as well as the next generation of engineers. The KVH Technology Scholars program is one way that we hope to give something back while encouraging students who are continuing their education in math and engineering,” said Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH’s chief executive officer.
Among those eligible for the scholarship are students who live on Aquidneck Island or attend high school on Aquidneck Island as well as the children and grandchildren of all current KVH employees.
