Beta Engineering is completing three years of funding $6,000 for scholarships awarded to Northwestern State University students pursing degrees in engineering technology. One is for an entering freshman focused on Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) or Industrial Engineering Technology (IET). The second is for a senior student, also focused on EET or IET. The scholarship stipulates that both students reside in Rapides Parish with a preference for graduates of Pineville High School.
