On behalf of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) – Mohawk-Hudson Section, we would like to offer your graduating seniors a scholarship opportunity. Each year the Mohawk-Hudson Section offers a scholarship to a graduating senior seeking to continue their education with the goal and desire to become a practicing civil engineer. This year we are offering a 4-year, $1,000 per year scholarship!
We invite you to share this invitation with graduating seniors who intend to enroll in an educational institution majoring in an ABET accredited curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Science Degree in field of Civil Engineering. We highly encourage you to submit more than one application from your school.
One winner will be selected from all the qualifying applications received. Judging for the award will be conducted by our section's scholarship committee. The scholarship will be presented to the selected winner at the section's annual dinner meeting to be held in early to mid-May in the greater Albany, New York area.
Attached to this letter is an application with response instructions. Please copy this and make available to interested graduating seniors. Students can also visit our section’s website at http://www.ascemohawkhudson.org/ to download a copy of the application and instructions. Applications with essay and GPA transcript are due Friday April 18, 2014. Applications should be submitted to:

The Mohawk Hudson Section of ASCE will again be hosting the annual Toys for Tots toy drive in both Troy and Malta. It is a great event in which about 500 toys a year have been collected and donated to needy in the local community. Invitations are attached with specific details on both events; feel free to stop by even if you aren’t an ASCE member.
In years past these have been great events, with about 60 engineers attending each event - Hors d’oeuvres will be provided, and there will be a cash bar.
If you can’t make it but would like to donate a toy (it must be new and unwrapped) you can drop one off with me and I will bring it over for you.
Hope to see you there!
We ended the summer with a fantastic tour of the new Capital Region Transportation Management Center (TMC). Big thanks to the staff of the TMC and State Police who provided a great presentation and in-depth look at their brand new facility.

Our next technical group meeting is on October 24, 2013 at Professor Java’s Coffee Sanctuary on Wolf Road. See you then.
