Feb 7, 2019

ASME student members who are interested in applying for one of the Society’s more than 100 scholarships — including the new ASME IGTI Gas & Turbomachinery Scholarship — should act quickly. The deadline to submit an application is March 1.

The ASME Scholarship Program seeks to ensure the future of the mechanical engineering profession while relieving some of the financial burden for ASME student members as they pursue an engineering education. ASME Scholarships are made possible by the generous contributions of donors through the ASME Foundation, the ASME Auxiliary and various independent ASME groups.

ASME will offer more than $350,000 in scholarships for the 2019-2020 school year through the ASME Scholarship Program. ASME student members who would like to apply only need to submit a single online application to be considered for all of the scholarships for which they qualify. Scholarships available to undergraduate students for the 2019-2020 school year include the $13,000 Kenneth Andrew Roe Scholarship, the $10,000 Standards & Certification Scholarship, the $5,000 Nuclear Engineering Division Scholarship, the $5,000 ASME/SHPE Dual Member Scholarship, the $5,000 Garland Duncan Scholarship, the $4,000 Melvin R. Green Scholarship, the $4,000 Virginia Tech Memorial Scholarship and the $4,000 American Electric Power Scholarship.

The new ASME IGTI Gas & Turbomachinery Scholarship will be awarded to approximately 20 students each year. The $2,000 scholarship is open to undergraduate or graduate students who are taking at least one course on gas and/or turbomachinery. Applicants must be enrolled in a mechanical engineering, mechanical engineering technology or related baccalaureate program. Recipients of the scholarship will be selected on the basis of scholastic ability and potential contribution to the mechanical engineering profession.
