The company awarded monetary scholarships designed to encourage the recipients to continue studying in the aerospace field, despite the fact that they did not win the national Outback UAV Challenge last year.
The three recipients of the scholarships, given at their graduation, were Stephen Horsburgh, Briana Wade and Saxon Hutchinson. Horsburgh was awarded the Northrop Grumman unmanned aerial systems engineering scholarship. Hutchinson was awarded the Northrop Grumman outstanding achievement in autonomous systems scholarship. Wade was awarded the Northrop Grumman outstanding leadership scholarship.
