Five chemistry undergraduate students have been awarded TechnipFMC Scholarships, Jacob Wol, Emilia Pieta, Austin Huang, Namuunzul Otgontseren and Hana Abbed. The $5,000 scholarships are awarded to undergraduates who have shown outstanding academic achievement and excelled in leadership, research and innovation as demonstrated by classroom performance, activities, essays, and hands-on experiences.
This educational fund was originally created by Bert A. Gayman, a University of Illinois mechanical engineering graduate, with an initial gift of 10,000 shares of Chicago-based Link-Belt Company (later acquired by FMC Corporation, which later merged with Technip to create TechnipFMC). His goal was to support three prongs – scholarships, fellowships, and/or research. Since then, more than 2,000 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students have benefited from Gayman’s generosity.
