The Delaware Valley Section of ASHE annually awards scholarships to several students with engineering majors at local universities.  The candidates are asked to complete an application that describes university courses completed, their engineering experiences and aspirations and provides background information.

For the second year, we were also privileged to recognize and award scholarships to three students from The Pennsylvania State University who received the Robert Shaw Memorial Scholarship.

  • Jeremick Agudelo
  • Jean Carlos Suarez Guzman
  • Micheal Rampersaud

A third award was presented to a Villanova University student in memory of long-time member and contributor to ASHE Del Val and ASHE National, Pat Dougherty.

The ASHE Delaware Valley Section president Mr. Jeff Given, P.E. congratulated the winners of the memorial scholarships and wished them best of luck.

Ms. McInnes presented this year’s recipients with their scholarship checks at the monthly ASHE dinner meeting and reminded the 200+ engineering community attendees, “The Delaware Valley has been awarding collegiate scholarships for over 40 years.  We are pleased to continue this effort which is supported by the membership of our organization.”  Since 2003, the ASHE Del Val Scholarship program has been named after Donna Prentice, a long-time supporter of the ASHE Delaware Valley Section and the late wife of former Regional Director and past National President, Richard S. Prentice, P.E.
