Each year, ASPE awards up to $3,000 in scholarship monies to qualified applicants through the Alfred Steele Scholarship. This scholarship is named in honor of Alfred Steele, PE, a long-time member of the Society and a visionary and pioneer in advocating education and professional development for plumbing engineers and designers.
The Alfred Steele Scholarship is limited to ASPE members and their immediate family members (i.e., spouses or children) who are planning a career in engineering.
The eligible individual must be:
- Enrolled in or planning to attend a college, university, or technical school on a full-time basis as of the fall or summer semester of the application year
- Have maintained a minimum overall grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 grading scale or its equivalent
- Be enrolled in a school or program of engineering
The official Alfred Steele Engineering Scholarship Application package consists of six forms. All portions of the application package must be complete, accurate, and legible. The Scholarship Selection Committee reserves the right to reject any and all applications.
ASPE’s Board of Directors will make the final scholarship determination and awards based on the recommendations of the Scholarship Selection Committee and reserves the right to decline to award any scholarships in any application year.
The Alfred Steele Scholarship will be awarded based on a blind panel selection process. All applications received will be given a scholarship applicant number, and all individual identifying information will be removed from the application and supporting forms and materials that are submitted. The Scholarship Selection Committee and the Board of Directors will receive only numbered applications and related supporting forms and materials.
The deadline to apply is January 31, 2020. You can find more information and the application at aspe.org/membership-global-community/membership/alfred-steele-scholarship.
