2015-2016 Scholarship Committee Report for the Southern California Chapter


Ishtiaq A Chisti, P.E.

Another year and another league of outstanding young future engineers were honored by the Chapter to help them march into the elegant profession that keeps the whole world comfortable and productive. Clay Lampman and I are proud to have selected and awarded the Chapter's Scholarships for 2015-16 - arguably the most rewarding achievement of the Southern California Chapter.

We interviewed students from four different schools this year to award the Chapter scholarships to a select few. The interviews were conducted in Cypress College and at the Chapter's meeting location in May. The total amount of Scholarships this year totaled $20,100.

The Chapter is yet to implement the Science Fairs scholarship program.

The details of this year's scholarship recipients are shown below.
