ASCE Dayton Section Roger F. Weiss Book Loan Award Application - Spring  2018

The Dayton Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is opening the application period for the Spring 2018 Roger F. Weiss Book Loan Award. Application for this award is open to all UD civil engineering students who are active members in the ASCE Student Chapter.

This award was established in 1985 in memory of Roger F. Weiss, a former UD civil engineering professor who was an active member of ASCE. The book loan will be awarded to deserving students and consists of:

1. The ASCE Dayton Section will purchase the technical books (math, science, engineering) required for the student’s Spring 2018 registered schedule from the UD bookstore. Non-technical books (humanities based courses, general education courses) will not qualify for this award. If you have a UD Book scholarship, that amount will be applied to your required book purchases before the Weiss award (first to your non-technical books, then technical books)
2. The purchased books will be on loan to the student for the duration of the semester.
3. Books must be returned to the ASCE Dayton Section no later than 5/11/18 (one week after final exams).
4. The student has the option to purchase the books from the ASCE Dayton section for the amount equivalent to the return value at the UD bookstore at the end of the semester.

The deadline for submitting this application is December 15, 2017. The Education Committee and Board of Directors for the Dayton Section of ASCE will review the applications and students will be notified of awards prior to the start of the Spring 2018 semester. The Board will contact you to arrange a date and time to pick up the books.

If you have any questions about this scholarship or the application form, please contact Don Chase at (937) 229-3847, Office: KL 441D, email [email protected].
