Autocam Medical Presents Scholarships to Three GVSU Students

(l-r) John C Kennedy, Jody Schmidt, Michael Flickenger, Eric Braun, Zach Lobbestael, John Kennedy IV and Kristy White

Autocam Medical, a contract manufacturer of precision surgical and medical components and devices, recently awarded three Grand Valley State University (GVSU) students with engineering scholarships.

Michael Flickenger, Eric Braun and Zach Lobbestael were presented with the Autocam Medical Engineering Scholarship. Former GVSU Board of Trustees member and Autocam Medical President and CEO John C. Kennedy established the program. The scholarship was designed to encourage and educate students about the changes that have occurred in advanced manufacturing.

"The field has evolved significantly over the past couple of decades," said Kennedy. "Many students have only had a minimal amount of exposure to manufacturing. It is our hope that this scholarship raises the awareness, and enhances the perception, of advanced manufacturing among college students."

The competitive scholarship is open to full-time GVSU students going into their sophomore year in the Seymour and Esther Padnos College of Engineering and Computing. Students are selected for their academic merit and their ability to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards. They also must declare a major in Mechanical Engineering, Product Design Manufacturing & Engineering, and/or Interdisciplinary Engineering (with a focus on Manufacturing Engineering).

As part of the scholarship process, students will also have the opportunity to participate in three paid co-ops with Autocam Medical during the summer of their first year, winter of their second year and fall of their third year.

Autocam Medical is a global contract manufacturer of precision-machined drill bits, drivers, screws, plates, cutting tools and other complex, highly engineered surgical implants, instruments and handpieces, as well as other device components. Clients are involved with instruments and devices used in procedures including the foot and ankle, hand and wrist, hip and knee, shoulder and elbow, spine, as well as ophthalmology and craniomaxillofacial procedures. The company offers a value-added approach to high-precision manufacturing with specialties in CNC milling, turning and cutter grinding. The company has achieved ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 certification and is FDA registered and been awarded a VISA certificate in Brazil.
