Scholarships Offered at IEST Annual Technical Meeting and Exposition
Rolling Meadows, IL | October 12, 2005
The Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST) announces its 52nd annual technical meeting and exposition, ESTECH 2006, to be held May 7-10, 2006 at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix in Phoenix, Arizona. The meeting will include tutorials, seminars/workshops, and working group meetings, as well as practical solutions in the state-of-the-art displays in the exhibition. New this year! Two scholarships will be offered to two full-time students in the educational programs of science or engineering.
The Eugene Borson Scholarship, in the amount of $500, is awarded annually by IEST for the best original technical paper(s) written by a student in a topic related to the environmental sciences in connection with controlled environments, particularly through contamination control and nanotechnologies, in which products and equipment are manufactured, processed, or tested. Eugene (Gene) Borson was a Fellow of IEST, and was a leader in the field of aerospace environmental and contamination control engineering until his death in 2005. He had a long and distinguished career and was a source of inspiration through his dedication and technical expertise. The Eugene Borson Memorial Scholarship was established by IEST in grateful appreciation of his service.
The Park Espenschade Memorial Scholarship, in the amount of $500, is awarded annually by IEST for the best original technical paper(s) written by a student in a topic related to the environmental sciences. "Environmental sciences" is used by IEST in connection with the effects on equipment and machinery of natural, indoor, and extreme environments which may occur under various aerospace, marine, and climatic conditions; and simulating environments to better trace and predict those effects. Park Espenschade was a member of IEST. At his death in 1976, the Park Espenschade Education Fund was established to honor Park Espenschade's enthusiasm, energy, devotion, and commitment to the education and training of young people in the environmental sciences.
To be eligible for consideration for the scholarships, a student must be entering sophomore year or above in an accredited institution, provide proof that he/she is enrolled full-time in an accredited institution, be pursuing a degree with a major or minor in science or engineering, and have attained a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale in most recent semester. No more than one paper may be submitted per applicant. The official application form, the paper, and all supplemental material need to be received by IEST no later than January 15.
