Applicants sought for technology scholarships.

The New Hampshire High Technology Council is accepting applications for Kocher Technology Scholarships, five $2,000-per-year grants awarded to students who are dependents of an employee of one of the council's 220 member companies.

To be eligible, a recipient must be studying in a two- or four-year program at a New Hampshire college or university and working toward a degree in science, technology, engineering or math.

Students are eligible for scholarships for up to four years. Students in their junior or senior year should have completed an internship with a New Hampshire company to be highly rated for an award.

According to Matt Pierson, chairman of the council, the scholarships "are designed to reward exceptional students and encourage them to stay in New Hampshire upon graduation. There are tremendous opportunities for New Hampshire students studying in science, technology, engineering and math. Our member companies can't fill their job openings in these areas today."

The scholarship program is administered by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. Dynamic Network Services of Manchester has underwritten all of the administrative expenses of the program.

Over one dozen New Hampshire entrepreneurs and businesses have contributed to the program to date, including Kedar and Renu Gupta, John Gargasz, Joe Mullen, Fred and Pam Kocher, Matt and Michelle Pierson, Jetboil, Gentex Electro-Acoustics, TD Banknorth Wealth Management, DTC Communications, GT Solar, Global Relief Technologies and Charles Hutchinson.

Deadline for applications is March 21. For more information, contact the High Technology Council at 603-924-8324 or visit
