Invest in the Success of Students, Faculty and Programs
The Gift of Time
Abigail Davidson, BS 2016, served as president of the UA chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers as an undergraduate and went on to become a project engineer at Turner Construction Co. She received a Harold Ashton Scholarship and a Fred and Anastasia Glendening Scholarship during her senior year.Without my scholarships, I would have had to take a job that helped pay tuition, which would have taken away my freedom to seek out organizations like the ASCE, Engineering Ambassadors and Women in Engineering Programming Board.
A Chance for Personal Growth
Patrick Hughes, BS 2015, was involved with Tau Beta Pi, the UA’s Rube Goldberg team and Engineering Ambassadors as an undergraduate, and he interned at Kiewit Mining Group in Texas. He was a 2015 Da Vinci Scholarship recipient.Scholarships not only bought my tuition and fees, but my peace of mind. They helped make my four years in college a renaissance of learning and personal growth.
Paying It Forward
Iftekhar Ahmed earned three civil engineering degrees from the UA, graduating with his doctorate in 2001. Now that he’s a professor of the subject at Prairie View A&M University, he gives back to his alma mater whenever he can.When I was a student I used to look for scholarship funds. I cannot give a lot, but whatever I do helps out.
