Honeywell has awarded scholarships to 254 students from 30 countries and 30 U.S. states and territories to attend the Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy (HLCA). This unique, week-long leadership and science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) program will run twice from February 26 to March 9 at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL.
HLCA provides children of Honeywell employees with the opportunity to develop their leadership skills through technology- and science-oriented workshops, lectures, and team exercises that include simulated astronaut training that brings these studies to life. Developed in partnership with the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, the program is designed to encourage high school students to pursue STEM-related careers.
Since 2010, Honeywell and the U.S. Space & Rocket Center have awarded more than 630 scholarships to students after rigorous application and review processes based on their academic achievement and community involvement. All junior and senior level high school children of full-time Honeywell employees are eligible to apply. Financial contributions from Honeywell employees help fund the scholarships, which include tuition for the week-long program, meals, accommodations, and program materials.
