To those of us in the consulting engineering profession, it’s clear: professional engineering schools throughout the country are not producing enough engineers to meet present and future demands. Fortunately, there’s a way you support the growth of engineers in New Jersey: each year ACECNJ’s scholarship fund supports students who are studying to become a civil engineer at a New Jersey college or university.
Support ACECNJ’s 2017 Scholarship Fund
ACECNJ’s scholarship fund awards up to six scholarships to undergraduate and graduate engineering students attending a New Jersey ABET-accredited engineering program. This scholarship program promotes the growth of the consulting engineering profession in the state of New Jersey. With the support of donations from consulting engineers, this fund has the potential to fulfill ACECNJ’s goal of nurturing future engineers that our state is demanding.
Each fall, ACECNJ representatives visit New Jersey’s colleges and universities to discuss the consulting engineers’ profession and to present ACECNJ’s scholarship program. Students apply by submitting an application and scored based on their grades, school and work experiences, recommendation, and an essay. Awarded scholarships go to students whose accomplishments stand out from all the other applicants through the scoring process.
A special presentation, spotlighting scholarship recipients, will recognize scholarship fund contributors at ACECNJ’s 46th Annual Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) Banquet on March 15, 2017 at the Forsgate Country Club in Jamesburg, New Jersey. Scholarship fund contributors will also be recognized in the EEA Banquet Journal, on ACECNJ’s social media, and have their logo featured on ACECNJ’s website.
