​ASCE Florida Section Past President's Scholarship Endowment

​For several years the Board has discussed the idea of creating an endowment to ensure the future of this scholarship program. It is with great enthusiasm, we can say now is the time. The Board was approached in July by Florida Section Past President E. Bruce Lawson with a desire to provide a substantial donation to kick start the formation of the ASCE Florida Section Past President’s Scholarship Endowment. The Section agreed to match Bruce’s generous donation and has agreed to match up to an additional $10,000 in donations. Our Section has had a relationship with the Florida Engineering Foundation for many years to support Engineering education programs through our Engineering Encounters Bridge Competition and building on that relationship, ASCE will once again partner with FEF, who will be providing an additional matching grant and manage the Endowment fund for the Section. We’ve reached out to our Past Presidents, who’ve had an enthusiastic response and I can tell you at this time, it appears we will have an incredible seed for the Endowment and project we’ll be able to fund an annual scholarship of $2500 or more with no future strain on the Section’s very tight budget. Thank you to Bruce Lawson and each of you that has been part of making this Endowment possible. We want to maximize matching funds and would like to open up this donation opportunity to all ASCE Florida Section members.  If you would like to contribute, please use the form here to provide us details and contact information.
