The Rhode Island Consulting Engineers recently awarded four scholarships to college students pursuing engineering degrees.
Using proceeds raised at a scholarship golf tournament held in June, $2,000 awards were presented to undergraduate students Christopher London, a senior at the University of Rhode Island; Gregory Coren, a senior at the University of Rhode Island; Andrew Grota, a senior at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth and Elizabeth Andruszkiewicz, a junior at the University of Notre Dame. RICE said it received applications from several highly qualified engineering students this year.
The organization’s scholarship program began more than 10 years ago and is an effort to promote and support engineering by encouraging young people to enter the profession.
In addition to awarding scholarships, RICE also enlists its member firms to participate in initiatives such as the University of Rhode Island’s engineering career day and its summer engineering academy, both held for high school students. •
