Awards

ASCE’s Honors and Awards program recognizes the commendable achievements and remarkable accomplishments of the civil engineering profession.  With more than 80 awards, the program distinguishes the unique contributions engineers make to both the industry and society.


2016-2017 Student Scholarships

Our section is lucky enough to have numerous respected engineering universities within our boundaries, and these university branches are very active ASCE groups. Each of our partnering universities is involved in the concrete canoe competition and attends the Eastern Regional Younger Member Council (ERYMC) conference. These students are our next ASCE leaders and we're proud of the accomplishments that they bring to our organization.

Each year the Section awards scholarships to undergraduate civil engineering students. The number and amount of the actual awards is at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee and the Board of Directors. Each year the following scholarships are awarded:
