On April 23 Chevron awarded 15 scholarships to deserving College of Engineering (CoE) students during a luncheon hosted by Chevron’s El Segundo Refinery.
A total of $15,000 in scholarships were distributed to five students each from the Chemical and Mechanical Engineering Departments, plus an additional five scholarships to students participating in the college’s Maximizing Engineering Potential (MEP) Program.
The 2009 Chevron donation also included $1,000 gifts to five of the CoE’s student engineering clubs – the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the American society of Mechanical Engineers, the National Society of Black Engineers, the Society of Women Engineers and the Society of Hispanics in Science & Engineering. Chevron’s support to the CoE thus totaled $29,000 this year, including $9,000 support to the above three CoE Departments.
Chevron representatives Jennifer Weimer and Justin Valencia presented the scholarships to the students at the luncheon hosted at The Restaurant at Kellogg Ranch. Weimer and Valencia, who are both CoE alums, were joined by three other engineering alumni who also currently work at Chevron’s El Segundo Refinery.
CoE Dean Ed Hohmann, Associate Dean Cordelia Ontiveros, and Department Chairs Winny Dong and Hassan Rejali also attended the scholarship luncheon. “While it was great to receive Chevron’s support, it was especially gratifying to see so many of our engineering alums from Chevron, who came to this event as well”, according to Dean Hohmann.
