Meet the Recipients of Custom MMIC’s Women in Engineering Scholarship

June 10, 2019

Left to right: Sarah McKinley, Emma Fournier and Grace Remillard spent a day at the International Microwave Symposium in Boston. They are interning at Custom MMIC this summer, after completing the first year studying engineering at college.


For me, one of the highlights of last week’s International Microwave Symposium in Boston was meeting the three young women who received Custom MMIC’s first Women in Engineering scholarships and have now completed their first years at college.

Sarah McKinley is at Clarkson University pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering, Emma Fournier is at Tulane University studying chemical engineering and Grace Remillard is attending the University of Massachusetts Lowell studying electrical engineering.

Listen to my conversation with these inspiring young women. Paul Blount, CEO of Custom MMIC, tells about his motivation to encourage and support young women pursuing engineering careers.

Kudos to Paul and Custom MMIC.
