Actuonix Motion Devices is excited to announce the launch of our scholarship program. This program was started as a way for us to give back to the engineering community by helping talented young engineers meet their financial needs. Our goal is to promote education in the various engineering disciplines and make it more accessible for young men and women considering it as a career path. Each year, Actuonix offers two scholarships of $1000USD.

  • Applicants must be willing to submit an example of a past project that they have worked on related to robotics, mechatronics or mechanical automation. Include a description of your project with it's intended use and any photos and videos that you have available. Use your discretion here, if you have an interesting project that doesn't fall exactly within these parameters but you think it might still be relevant, go ahead and submit it anyways. Please submit your project either in pdf format or if it's already online, send a link in the body of your email.
