Through the chapter integration process, the Council realized that some chapters awarded scholarships and some did not. In order to unify as One ACEC Ohio, the task force recommended the creation of a Scholarship Committee. The committee is chaired by Chris Preto, and we have one representative from each of the chapter leadership included on the committee. After the first meeting, the consensus from the committee was to award one $2,500 scholarship, funded by the chapters, to one student in each region.
To qualify for consideration for a scholarship, an applicant must be a full or part-time student (sophomore, junior, senior or graduate student status) pursing an engineering or surveying degree and enrolled in an ABET accredited engineering or surveying program.
After the committee reviews the select recipients, the committee will then forward the top two applications to ACEC National to compete in their scholarship program.
The deadline for all applications is Friday, January 4, 2019.
February 19 – Award scholarship applicants
March 15 – Submit National eligible scholarship applicants
