Students who want to pursue an engineering career in southern DeWitt and Logan Counties or Macon Counties are invited to apply for a scholarship from the Central Illinois Chapter of the Illinois Society of Professional Engineers.
The Society's Willard Sudduth explains they are looking for the best of the best. He indicates candidates should be accepted into an engineering college or junior college with an ACT score of at least 28 or an SAT equivalent.
Applicants must reside within Macon, Moultrie, Piatt, Shelby and the southern parts of DeWitt and Logan Counties. Sudduth says the northern portion of their chapter cuts off in those counties.
Students interested in applying for this scholarship for $1,500 should submit a brief resume. Sudduth indicates this should include their school activities, any leadership roles in those clubs or groups, along with any awards as well as a transcript with their ACT or SAT scores and a one-page composition expressing their interest in engineering.
