The Chattanooga Engineers Club, a longtime valued Chattanooga State supporter, has established the Chattanooga Engineers Scholarship, providing a $10,000 annual donation for engineering technology scholarships. Chattanooga State is home to one of the largest engineering technology departments within the College System of Tennessee.

Funding was made possible through the Frazier Engineering Education and Development Fund, administered through the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga. The Chattanooga State scholarship was one of four $10,000 scholarships that the club established in the Chattanooga tri-state region.

“The Engineers Club has funded scholarships at Chattanooga State for many years, now with the Frazier Engineering Education and Development Fund we can provide more funding on an annual basis," said Albert Curtis, club president. "The members believe that Chattanooga State offers a great technical education for students in our area and is a wonderful place to help students fund their education."
