Kimball International announces scholarship recipients

JASPER — Kimball International announced that it has awarded scholarships to 10 students pursuing their higher education. The Kimball International Scholarships Program awards multiple $2,000 scholarships to high-achieving young women and men each year and is funded by the Kimball International-Habig Foundation. Since the scholarship program was established in 1963, a total of over $3.5 million in scholarship funds have been granted.

“Kimball International believes in sparking possibilities,” said Lonnie Nicholson, chair of the Kimball International-Habig Foundation and Kimball International’s chief human resources officer, “and one way that we achieve that is by investing in the growth and development of our next generation.”

This year, the Kimball International Scholarship Program has awarded scholarships to 10 aspiring students — including six high school seniors and four college undergraduates. One of these students will receive the Bob Schneider Skilled Trades Scholarship, which is also a $2,000 scholarship for students pursuing a skilled trades certification at an accredited institution. The recipients were chosen by a committee of individuals who are entirely independent of Kimball International, based on established selection criteria.
