Boeing Funds Engineering Scholarships

For the second year, Boeing Company has provided three undergraduate scholarships valued at $2,000 each to be awarded to electrical and computer engineering students this fall. Boeing is one of several Jacobs School CAP members that participate in the school’s corporate scholarship program.

“In addition to being a wonderful way of supporting students through their college careers, industry-sponsored scholarships also help companies to increase their name recognition and can be used very effectively to recruit future employees,” said Marina Hayden, Jacobs School Scholarship Program Manager, who notes that Engineering Student Services helps advertise scholarships to students and make selections based on the company’s criteria.

In addition to the gifts for scholarships, Boeing is providing $2,500 for Jacobs School student
organizations. The Society of Women Engineers (SWE), National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), and the Triton Engineering Student Council (TESC) have been awarded $500 each.
