Welu receives 2013 engineering scholarship

Brady J. Welu, a senior in the Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Department at South Dakota State University, Brookings, S.D., was selected to receive the 2013 ASABE Foundation Engineering Scholarship by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, the Society for engineering in agricultural, food and biological systems.

On behalf of ASABE, Dr. Van C. Kelley, head, Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Department, South Dakota State University will be presenting the $1,000 grant to Welu during an October department scholarship banquet. The scholarship is made possible by the contributions of ASABE members through the ASABE Foundation.

Welu is the recipient of the scholarship grant, which is presented annually to an ASABE student member enrolled in an ABET or CEAB accredited agricultural/biosystems engineering program. To qualify, students must maintain a high grade point average, verify that graduation assures eligibility for the Professional Engineering licensing exam and can attest to the need for financial aid.

Welu is currently pursuing a bachelor of science degree in agricultural engineering, with an emphasis in power systems and machines, and is expected to graduate in May, 2014.
