Donation Dollars At Work

An FPEF memorial donation was made in memory of Richard Bardos, who passed away in 2013, with the request that the money be used for a student who displayed hard work and dedication—two qualities in which Richard firmly believed. Nathan Brace, Iowa State University, who earned the top score in the Board of Trustees’ voting process, received a $2,000 scholarship underwritten by the Richard Bardos Memorial Donation.

fpef3“I am humbled to receive this scholarship as the donation was made in memoriam. Thank you to the family of Richard Bardos and the Fluid Power Educational Foundation for the scholarship award to support my education at Iowa State University.  As an engineering student interested in the fluid power industry, it is very much appreciated to help pay my tuition.”
Nathan Brace, CFPHS, Iowa State University
