Georgia Engineering Foundation Scholarships

The Georgia Engineering Foundation awarded three Georgia Southern students in the Mechanical Engineering program scholarships this year.

Sierra Houang received the Trooper and Jami Smith Scholarship; Marcela Montoya, the Dan Duwell Memorial Scholarship; and Camille Phillips, the David L. Smith Memorial Scholarship.

For more than 47 years, the Georgia Engineering Foundation has sponsored a program that awards college scholarships to worthy Georgia students who are preparing for a career in engineering or engineering technology. Since 1985, over 900 students have been awarded scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $6,000. In 2019, 42 awards were made and a total of $76,500 was given to students pursuing a field in either engineering or engineering technology.

All scholarships are competitively awarded based on the student’s demonstrated competence in academics, interest in developing a career in engineering, financial need, and school and community involvement. Look for the next application period to open again in Summer 2020 at
