Alcoa Scholarships for Undergrads at University of Virginia

Dear  second and third year SEAS students,

Welcome back to Grounds and the new semester. I am writing to alert you to scholarships available through our Alcoa Campus Partnership Program.

Knowing that engineers play important roles as innovators and leaders in the American and global economy, Alcoa provides two undergraduate scholarships ($3,500 each) to students who have demonstrated the aptitude to become future leaders in engineering.

Alcoa scholarships are available to all second- and third-year SEAS students, but we encourage students majoring in disciplines of special interest to Alcoa—Engineering Science (Material Science Minor), Mechanical Engineering, or Aerospace Engineering—to apply. We urge women and underrepresented minority students as well as students in the Engineering Business Minor to apply for these awards to ensure a diverse and talented engineering workforce. A scholarship committee of SEAS faculty and Alcoa representatives will select the recipients on a merit basis.

The selection for these scholarships will take place early in the fall of 2013, allowing Alcoa to contact the winners to discuss 2014 summer internship positions.

DEADLINE: 4.59 PM, 9 September 2013

TO APPLY

Please provide FOUR COPIES of the following to Vanessa Pace, Department of Engineering & Society, Thornton A237, vpp@virginia.edu.

+ Application form (available from Ms. Pace)

+ 250-word essay discussing how you would use the scholarship to develop as an engineering leader

+ Unofficial transcript

+ Resume

Please contact me if you have any questions about this exciting opportunity.

Sincerely,
WB Carlson
Director, Engineering Business Programs
