2015 AMG Structural Engineering Scholarship
The AMG Structural Engineering Scholarship is designed to identify and influence the structural engineers of tomorrow who will design and build our future.
An annual $1,500 tuition scholarship is awarded each year to a full-time college student who is working toward a degree in an engineering field. We welcome applications from students pursuing degrees in Structural Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, and related engineering majors.
To be applicable for the AMG Structural Engineering Scholarship, students must:
- Be enrolled as a "full-time" student
- Prove a GPA of 3.0 or higher
- Major in a field related to structural engineering
- Be involved in at least one extracurricular activity - including service groups, professional/engineering clubs, social societies, volunteer programs, or other noteworthy extracurricular involvement.
As a part of the engineering scholarship application process, applicants will be asked to submit a brief essay (maximum of 500 words) to provide background on their engineering interests. Essays will be centered around the question "Why Engineering" and will ask students to describe why they have chosen a career in engineering as well as to describe what they hope to accomplish during their engineering careers.
Applications are now closed for the 2015 scholarship.
About the Structural Engineering Field
Our hope through the AMG Structural Engineering Annual Scholarship Program is to support tomorrow's outstanding structural engineers, as well as to recognize the schools and teachers who inspire and prepare engineering students.
Structural engineering is a vast field comprised of the analysis and design of deep and shallow foundation systems. The field commonly works to design and build structures and systems using steel, concrete, timber, and masonry materials. Engineers are responsible for bringing complex ideas and designs to life everyday.
About the 2015 AMG Structural Engineering Scholarship Winner
Alicia is currently pursuing a bachelors degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering with an emphasis in structural and geotechnical engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Aside from being active in the UCLA ASCE Student Chapter as the Project Executive as well as a member of the Steel Bridge Team, Alicia participated in research under Professor John Wallace on concrete shear walls using digital imaging correlation programs. After graduation in June 2016, she plans on pursuing a masters degree in structural engineering.
