Alwin B. Newton Scholarship

Description

The Alwin B. Newton Scholarship is a one-year scholarship named for an industry pioneer, who was granted 219 patents during his lifetime. Scholarships are awarded to engineering or pre-engineering students who are enrolled in a post-secondary educational institution and pursuing a Bachelor of Science or Engineering degree in a course of study that traditionally has been a preparatory curriculum for the HVAC&R profession. Applicants must have a cumulative college GPA of at least 3.0 and/or a class standing of no less than the top 30 percent and meet at least one of the following criteria: (A) the institution hosts an active ASHRAE Student Branch; (B) the program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET); (C) the institution is accredited by an equivalent agency outside the USA that is a signatory of the Washington Accord; or (D) the institution has a signed Memorandum of Understanding with ABET. Re-applications are accepted from former scholarship applicants and recipients who meet current criteria. Three signed letters of recommendation are required: one from an instructor or faculty advisor, a current or past employer, and another character reference (other than a family member). In cases where the institution has an ASHRAE student branch on campus, a letter from the faculty advisor of that branch may be one of the three letters of recommendation. For more information about eligible schools and accredited programs recognized by ASHRAE, please visit the sponsor's website or contact ASHRAE.
