July 16, 2015

Nine students from the Dwight look College of Engineering at Texas A&M University were named recipients of the 2015 Kaneka Scholarship given by the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station’s (TEES) Polymer Technology Center.

The scholarship awards $1,000 in tuition to graduate and undergraduate students who display academic excellence and research interest in the polymers industry.

Kaneka Americas Holding Inc., a Japanese bioplastics and organic technologies company, established the scholarship fund in 2013. It partnered with the university to launch a new research and development facility on campus.

“We appreciate Kaneka’s contribution to our students conducting research in materials science or organic chemistry,” said Dr. Hung-Jue Sue, director of the center and a TEES professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. “It helps us attract top talent in the field. We are grateful for the scholarship and hope to continue building our relationship with Kaneka.”

The Polymer Technology Center is a cooperative program of the Departments of Aerospace Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering. The center features seminars for students, faculty and industry partners and an educational component with an emphasis on polymers.
