SCHOLARSHIPS

Engineering Lab

Almost since its inception, the Engineers Club has provided a scholarship to a qualified student aspiring to a Baccalaureate degree in Engineering.  Currently, ten dollars of the annual dues of each Club member are designated to the Scholarship Fund to provide, at a minimum, a $2,000 scholarship each calendar year.

The awardee must have already demonstrated successful commitment to advanced education in a 4-year Engineering field by completing courses equivalent to a full Freshman Engineering year with a grade point average of at least 3.0. Specifically, headway must have been achieved in college level calculus, chemistry and physics.  Demonstration of financial need is also a criteria.  Graduates of local high schools are preferred.

In early Fall, the Scholarship Committee asks Glendale Community College to post our selection criteria, and supply us applications from which two or three students are selected for intensive interviews.

The successful awardee, along with a parent, is invited to our January luncheon to be introduced to the membership, and give a 3-4 minute presentation on background, synopsis of work experiences, and career goals.  The Committee then follows the awardee’s progress to be certain that the second half of the scholarship should be paid for the Fall semester.
