BETHANY, CT - Laticrete International founder and chairman emeritus, Dr. Henry M. Rothberg, has made a major financial contribution to fund 20 scholarships annually for students to pursue a degree in chemical engineering at his alma mater, the University of South Carolina’s School of Chemical Engineering.

Today, the Henry M. Rothberg Bicentennial Scholarships are a powerful recruiting tool used by the School of Chemical Engineering at USC. “Rothberg Scholars” represent the top 5% of their graduating high school class and have SAT scores that average 100 points higher than other students enrolled in chemical engineering at the university. In order to qualify, applicants must be a U.S. citizen and maintain a “B” average or higher. With the enrollment numbers for chemical engineering on the decline at universities across the country, the Rothberg Scholarship program has helped USC maintain a stable level of enrollment, according to Laticrete International.

Dr. Rothberg founded Laticrete International in 1956. His dedication to the science of chemical engineering not only fueled the success of Laticrete International; it is now offering students at the University of South Carolina the opportunity to pursue their own success within that profession.

Tile and stone industry members and their families are encouraged to apply for these Rothberg-Laticrete scholarships by contacting the admissions department at the University of South Carolina.
