Introducing the 2021 Ducommun Scholars
Ducommun Incorporated has named 30 new Ducommun Scholars who will each receive a $2,000 or $3,000 scholarship for college expenses during the 2021-2022 academic year.
Ducommun Scholarships are a merit-based, renewable program available exclusively to full-time employees' children and grandchildren attending a four-year college or university, or a two-year accredited technical or vocational college.
"Congratulations to our 2021 Ducommun Scholars! After a very tough year for all students dealing with the pandemic, this group should be very proud of their accomplishments and resilience dealing with all the challenges at both school and home. This program continues to develop more and more, and I am thrilled that we can support young people in their journey to reach their dreams! Charles L. Ducommun, our founder, left New York City in the 1840s and traveled to what is now Los Angeles to pursue a new future, and I wish that same spirit for all our scholars as they begin a new chapter in their lives. I am sure the entire Ducommun team joins me in wishing them the very best and also congratulating all the parents and grandparents who have supported them," said Stephen G. Oswald, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Ducommun Incorporated.
Students are chosen by Scholarship Management Services, a division of Scholarship America, which independently administers the application, review and selection process for the Ducommun Scholars program. Student awards are based on academic record, leadership and participation in school and community activities, as well as work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and letters of recommendation.
