KVH Announces Recipient of 2018 Technology Scholarship


KVH Industries, Inc., is pleased to announce that Connor Pozzi, of Seekonk, MA, has received the 2018 A.H. Kits van Heyningen Technology Scholarship. A 2018 graduate of Seekonk High School, Mr. Pozzi is planning to begin his studies in mechanical engineering at UMass-Lowell this September.

Mr. Pozzi is the most recent recipient of the $1,000 award, which is presented annually to a high school senior who is either a resident of Aquidneck Island, attending a high school on Aquidneck Island, or the child or grandchild of a current KVH employee. In addition, the recipient must be planning to pursue a science, technology, engineering, arts, or math (STEAM) program at a four-year college. Mr. Pozzi will also receive an additional $1,000 award prior to the second year of college, and he will be considered for a paid internship at KVH before the third and fourth years of college.

“We are thrilled to have Connor as our newest KVH Technology Scholar, and congratulate him on being chosen from among this year’s very competitive applicants,” says Armindo Costa, quality engineer at KVH, and a member of this year’s panel of scholarship judges. “We wish him the best as he begins his studies in mechanical engineering.”

At Seekonk High School, Mr. Pozzi achieved a 4.0 grade point average while taking a majority of Advanced Placement and Honors courses. He intends to study mechanical engineering to continue his strong interest in science, math, and problem-solving. His mother, Pamela Pozzi, is a lead software engineer for KVH.

KVH started its technology scholarship program in 2008 in recognition of the importance that STEAM professionals play in the current and future success of the company and the local economy. KVH is a leading global source of solutions for mobile connectivity and inertial navigation. The A.H. Kits van Heyningen Technology Scholarship is named for KVH’s late co-founder and chief scientist.
