Monday, October 28, 2013
The American Council of Engineering Companies of Tennessee (ACEC of Tennessee) is now accepting applications from engineering and land surveying students in Tennessee for several state and national scholarship programs.                 

“ACEC of Tennessee has always been committed to promoting the engineering profession in a variety of ways, including education,” said Jerry Stump, who chairs the committee that will review all scholarship applications submitted by Tennessee students. “We count it as a privilege to once again offer these scholarship programs.” 

The national scholarship program of the ACEC will award several scholarships totaling $20,000. The Council of Structural Engineers of ACEC will award a $5,000 scholarship to a structural engineering student enrolled in a Master’s degree program. ACEC of Tennessee will award up to two $1,000 scholarships. 

ACEC of Tennessee will announce its scholarship winners in March 2014. The national scholarship winners will be announced in October 2014. 

The 2013 ACEC of Tennessee scholarship winners were Caleb Drummer, a civil engineering student at UT-Knoxville and Nicholas True, a mechanical engineering student at UT-Chattanooga.   

To qualify for a scholarship, a student must be a U.S. citizen pursuing a Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Doctor of Philosophy degree in an engineering or land-surveying program in Tennessee approved by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.  Students must be entering their junior, senior, fifth or graduate year in the fall of 2014 to qualify.  Candidates for the Council of Structural Engineers’ scholarship must be enrolled in a Master’s degree program for Structural Engineering in the 2014 fall semester.
