ASHRAE Assists College Students with Tuition through Society Scholarships

ASHRAE has announced the recipients of 33 Society scholarships, totaling $164,000 for the 2017-18 academic year.

“The ASHRAE Society scholarship program was launched to both encourage and reward students who pursue STEM education and demonstrate active engagement in innovative research, which may lead us to a better world,” says 2017-2018 ASHRAE President Bjarne W. Olesen. "We are eager to support the next generation of engineers as they shape our future.”

The students, all pursuing an undergraduate degree in engineering or technology leading to a career within the HVAC&R industry, will receive undergraduate ASHRAE scholarships in the amount of $10,000, $5,000, and $3,000

Over the course of 29 years, ASHRAE has awarded nearly $2 million of scholarship money to nearly 400 students. Through its scholarships, ASHRAE seeks to motivate students to pursue an engineering or technology career in the HVAC&R field.

Applications are now being accepted for the Society’s 2018-19 undergraduate engineering, engineering technology, regional/chapter, and university-specific scholarships. The deadline is Dec. 1, 2017. Visit www.ashrae.org/scholarships for complete eligibility requirements and application materials.
