AMETEK, Inc. has committed $25,000 to Point Park University to establish a scholarship for a student pursuing a degree in electrical engineering or mechanical engineering.

The gift is in recognition of the Process & Analytical Instruments Division (P&AI) being named the recipient of AMETEK’s 2020 Helmut N. Friedlaender Leadership Award. The Friedlaender Award was established by AMETEK’s Board of Directors in 2006 to honor the late Helmut N. Friedlaender, who served on the company’s board for more than 50 years. The award is intended to foster leadership development, motivate team performance and reward AMETEK divisions that promote diversity and inclusion.

The AMETEK P&AI Scholarship award will promote diversity through Point Park's focus on an applicant’s socioeconomic group, educational background and/or challenging life circumstances. The scholarship will go directly toward tuition, room and board and distributed evenly over the student's remaining semesters.

The scholarship application deadline is Aug. 31, 2021 at 5 p.m.

  • The award is intended to foster leadership development, motivate team performance and reward AMETEK divisions that promote diversity and inclusion.
