BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy markets, today announced the recipients of the 2014 Dr. Jeffrey Chuan Chu Memorial Fellowship Program in partnership with Middlesex Community College (MCC), Bedford and Lowell, Mass. The 10 student recipients were presented with the fellowship awards at a meeting at BTU headquarters in Billerica on May 20, 2014.

The 2014 winners of the Dr. Jeffrey Chuan Chu Memorial Fellowship Program are MCC students Naina Adhikari, Stephanie Cannata, Miranda Cashman, Maryna Eppinger, Sean Farnham, Drew Gentile, Amin Gholizadeh, Kimsokun Ket, Amy Linares and Yatsen Paak. They will join MCC's International Fellowship Program on a cultural and educational tour of China at the end of May. The 2014 MCC China Tour will again include a factory visit to BTU's facility in Shanghai, China.

"After the success of the 2012 program, we are pleased to once again support the MCC China Tour. The program certainly meets the dual objective of the fellowship to honor Dr. Chu's lifelong drive to bridge the cultures of China and the U.S., while providing a unique opportunity to local students to broaden their horizons. The students who were part of the 2012 program made an indelible impression on us and we hope this year's fellows will in turn become world travelers and fully embrace cultural differences and exchanges,' said Paul van der Wansem, chairman and CEO of BTU International. "We know that Dr. Chu would have been delighted to see these young people become players in the globally-interconnected world."

The Dr. Jeffrey Chuan Chu Memorial Fellowship was established by BTU International, Inc. in 2011 to honor the memory of Dr. Chu (July 14, 1919 - June 6, 2011), who served initially as a consultant and later as Director of the Board to BTU from 1991 through February of 2009. He was highly instrumental in the start of BTU's operations in China. Dr. Chu was a pioneer in the development of early computer technologies and a crusader for U.S.-China cultural exchange. He was both a teacher and perennial student, invigorated by the world of ideas and was eager to share his knowledge with others.
