(CBS DETROIT) – BorgWarner is taking further action in its commitment to diversity through a donation of $925,000 for scholarships for Kettering University students. The BorgWarner Scholars Program will aim to distribute annual scholarships to students in financial need, with a primary focus on African American and Hispanic students who have an interest in participating in an engineering co-op at BorgWarner.

Through the endowment, Kettering University will be able to award scholarships – with nearly $40,000 earmarked annually.
