The University of Arkansas Cossatot is proud to announce that the De Queen High School recipients of the Regional Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (RAMP) Scholarships are Carter Faulkenberry, Luis A. Perches, and Kevin J. Sims.
RAMP Scholarships are awarded to students attending UA Cossatot and pursuing an education in Industrial Technology. They will be in the first cohort of Industrial Technology students to receive training at the UA Cossatot Lockesburg Industrial Maintenance Institute, housed at the refurbished Lockesburg High School campus.
Faulkenberry, Perches, and Sims each receive a $500 scholarship for the upcoming fall 2018 semester.
The majority of RAMP Scholarship recipients attend Secondary Career Center Welding or Industrial Fundamentals classes as high school seniors. They have gained momentum by completing coursework and receiving college credit toward their career goals.
The RAMP Scholarship is funded by an Arkansas Regional Workforce and Development grant. UA Cossatot began awarding these scholarships when the grant was created in 2016. Since then, over $9000 in scholarships have been awarded to either high school graduates or non-traditional students who are pursuing coursework and a career in Industrial Technology.
