To recognize H. Scott Fogler’s impact on chemical engineering education for decades to come, the AIChE Foundation renamed the AIChE's Annual Chem-E-Car Competition® First Place Prize in his honor, creating a permanent endowment.
The annual Chem-E-Car Competition®, one of AIChE’s most popular and notable events, was founded in 1998 by Scott Fogler and the AIChE Student Chapters Committee. The annual competition engages thousands of undergraduate college students from all over the world in designing and constructing a car powered by a chemical energy source that will safely carry a specified load over a given distance and stop.
The renaming of the Competition First Place Prize was announced at the 2017 Annual AIChE Meeting and Student Conference in Minneapolis. In fitting gratitude, all founding donors will be recognized each year by AIChE and as part of the AIChE Foundation’s Doing a World of Good campaign. To donate exclusively in support of this endowment, please contact us using the information below.
