by ASME News

ASME student members who are interested in applying for one of the Society’s more than 80 scholarships — including 20 ASME IGTI Gas & Turbomachinery Scholarships and the new Petroleum Engineering Scholarship — should act now. Scholarship applications must be submitted by March 3.

The ASME Scholarship Program aims to ensure that qualified students can pursue mechanical engineering while alleviating some of the financial burden ASME student members experience as they pursue a degree. ASME Scholarships are made possible by the generous contributions of donors through the ASME Foundation, the ASME Auxiliary, and various independent ASME groups.

The ASME Scholarship Program will provide student members with approximately $400,000 in scholarships for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year. Students can apply for all the scholarships for which they are eligible by completing just one application.

Scholarships available to undergraduate students for the 2020-2021 school year include the $13,000 Kenneth Andrew Roe Scholarship, the $10,000 Standards & Certification Scholarship, and the new $10,000 Petroleum Division Scholarship. Students can also apply for the $8,000 Melvin R. Green Scholarship, the $5,000 Garland Duncan Scholarship, the $5,000 Nuclear Engineering Division Scholarship, the $5,000 ASME/SHPE Dual Member Scholarship, the $4,000 American Electric Power Scholarship, and the $4,000 Virginia Tech Memorial Scholarship.

In addition this year, students will also have the opportunity to apply for approximately 20 ASME IGTI Gas & Turbomachinery Scholarships. The $2,000 scholarship is open to undergraduate or graduate students who are taking at least one course on gas and/or turbomachinery. Recipients of the new scholarship, which can be added to other scholarships by the Scholarship Committee, will be selected on the basis of scholastic ability and potential contribution to the mechanical engineering profession.
