As part of DuPont’s long-standing relationship with Louisiana State University (LSU), DuPont announced its plans to once again sponsor scholarships in the Gordon A. & Mary Cain Department of Chemical Engineering (ChE) and the Mechanical Engineering (ME) Department.

Department Chair Dr. Kalliat T. Valsaraj was on hand to receive the check for $1,000 for ChE scholarship. Dr. Dimitris E. Nikitopoulos accepted a check for three ME scholarships. Checks were presented by Technology Manager, Mari Talavera, DuPont Chemical Solutions’ Pontchartrain Plant in LaPlace. Scholarship recipients must be in line to receive a degree in ChE or ME, have an overall GPA of at least 3.0 (in a 4.0 scale), be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, and must have demonstrated strengths in technical, interpersonal, and leadership skills.
