Minority Affairs Committee's Minority Scholarship Awards for College Students

The AIChE Minority Scholarship Award is presented to selected AIChE undergraduate student members annually. Applicants shall be required to be undergraduates in chemical engineering during the current academic year and be members of a minority group that is under-represented in chemical engineering, i.e., African-American, Hispanic, Native American, Alaskan Native, Pacific Islander.

Applicants who will complete the chemical engineering baccalaureate degree requirements in mid-academic year (i.e., after one semester of one or two quarters), if successful, will receive prorated awards. In addition to this award, The Outstanding Scholastic Achievement Award, which consists of a certificate and honorarium, may be awarded to eligible applicants. No separate application form is required for that award.

NOTE: The MInority Affairs Committee Award for Outstanding Scholastic Acheivement, which recognizes outstanding achievements by a chemical engineering student who serves as a role model for minority students, will be selected from continuing college students who apply for the College scholarship award.
