Technical Leadership Program
Blaudow/ATS Technical Leadership Program
The Blaudow/ATS Leadership scholarship at Southern Illinois University is designed to educate the next generation of technical leaders for America’s future. Recognizing the shortage of manufacturing leaders, Richard Blaudow, founder, CEO and Chairman of ATS, created this program with his alma mater to ensure that U.S. manufacturing continues to thrive.
This program is the best transfer scholarship program in the state of Illinois and is open to out-of-state students as well, seeking to prepare the most talented community college students for a fast-track career as a leader in manufacturing.
Recipients receive an $18,000 scholarship to be applied towards tuition and an opportunity for a paid summer internship with ATS. This opportunity provides real world, hands-on experiences as well as leadership training, preparing students to compete for top jobs after graduation.
Southern Illinois University College of Engineering offers Bachelor’s degrees in several accredited programs including mechanical engineering, electrical engineering technology, and industrial technology.
