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
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.
