OSCF Establishes Honorary Scholarship for Ohio Students (10/6/09)
In addition, the Ohio Soybean Council (OSC) contributed matching funds of $50,000 to create a $100,000 endowment that will ensure that the Bhima Vijayendran Scholarship will be available to students for many years to come.
“Bhima has been a leader in the soy-based bioproducts field, so it was a natural fit when we decided to establish and name a scholarship in honor of him and his work,” said Kirk Merritt, OSCF director of outreach and programs. “We thank Battelle for making this scholarship possible.”
Vijayendran is a recognized authority on specialty chemical and polymer systems for a range of applications.
