Engineering Students Receive Both ASA National Aerospace Scholarships

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

Each year, the Aerospace States Association (ASA) presents only two scholarships nationwide to students who are furthering their studies in the fields of aviation and aerospace. This year, undergraduate students in the University of Iowa College of Engineering won both of them.

Darin Hoover of Rockford, IL, and Dustin Tardiff of Cedar Rapids, IA, received the scholarships in an October 9 presentation made by Lt. Governor Patty Judge on behalf of the ASA and the National Lt. Governors Association in Iowa City. Joining in the ceremony were representatives of Rockwell Collins of Cedar Rapids, which sponsors the ASA scholarships.

The ASA is a bipartisan organization of lieutenant governors and state-appointed delegates that promotes a state-based perspective on federal aerospace policy development and supports state aerospace initiatives to enhance student/teacher education outreach and economic development opportunities.
