West Bend, Wis.-based Gehl Co. last week announced that the Gehl Foundation awarded two $20,000 collegiate scholarships for the academic year beginning in the fall of 2010.
Max Brudvig of Cedarburg, Wis., son of Gehl Co. employee David Brudvig, and Meghan Vogt of Pierce, Neb., daughter of Gehl employee Gale Vogt, are the recipients of the 2010 scholarships.
Children of Gehl employees graduating from high school are eligible to compete for the scholarship program. Selections are made annually based on merit, including secondary school academic records, extracurricular activities both inside and outside of school, and qualities of character, leadership and motivation.
Recipients are eligible to receive $5,000 per year for each of four years during their collegiate career. Satisfactory scholastic performance and continuous full-time enrollment are required to maintain eligibility in the program.
Established in 1964, the Gehl Foundation awards scholarships promoting higher education.
