Scholarship Society Chairman Message

Dear Alumni,

As chairman and president of the Scholarship Society for the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, I would once again like to thank you for your ongoing support and let you know more about the impact your support has on the students.

Your generosity and involvement with the department has a significant impact on the ability of our students to pursue future engineering careers. BYU provides a rigorous and rewarding educational experience for students. Employers recognize the impact this has on their businesses and organizations when they hire these young professionals. Part of what makes these graduates different is the opportunity to be involved in so many learning opportunities and to learn in an environment that is unique to BYU.

During the academic 2014-2015 year the Scholarship Society assisted students with scholarships totaling in an excess of $181,000. In addition to tuition assistance, you helped students participate in study abroad courses - 22 to China, 9 to the Netherlands, and 21 to the Dominican Republic - as well as other activities including the Rocky Mountain Conference, EERI Seismic Design, ITE Student Leadership Summit and ITE Western District Conference, where they performed very well.

Thank you for your participation and we hope you will continue to be involved and help us do even more in the future. Here are some of the activities planned for Homecoming Weekend 2015:

We have been very pleased with the work of so many in assisting our students. In addition to the scholarships, we have seen the impact that mentoring can have on individuals as they prepare for their careers. There are opportunities to get involved at whatever level works for you. It has been a gratifying opportunity for me. We encourage you to remain involved, or get involved, if you have participated in the past.

We look forward to seeing you for homecoming and hope you will come socialize with us at the barbeque and the golf tournament.
