Santoro Scholarship

The Santoro Scholarship for Robotics


Chris Santoro

A new scholarship fund to support passionate engineering students 

Christopher Santoro was a friend, colleague, and continuous inspiration at Honeybee Robotics. His aptitude for electrical engineering was outmatched only by his appetite to solve the toughest problems. He motivated everyone at the company with his creativity, passion and excellence — not just as a systems engineer, but as a home-brew master, outdoor enthusiast, metalhead, bountiful gardener, and student of the world’s hottest Trinidad Scorpion chili pepper.

Though Chris passed away in 2015, his contributions to the company continue. He started as an intern in 2005 and quickly advanced to more senior positions, but always dedicated extra attention to supervising the interns who followed him. Everyone at Honeybee, including those of us who have gone on to other ventures, benefitted from his uniquely dogged approach and insights.

In Chris’s honor, Honeybee Robotics has established a scholarship fund to support engineering students, especially those interested in robotics. We’ll be dedicating the first Santoro Scholarship for Robotics awards in 2015.

Your support for this fund will be appreciated in honoring a dedicated and inspiring colleague and helping to cultivate future generations of passionate engineers. All donations made through the link below are tax-deductible.
