MSA Awards Scholarships to Engineering Students

MSA awarded six $1,000 scholarships for the fall 2015 semester to civil and environmental engineering students attending selected universities throughout the Upper Midwest. The scholarships were awarded based on several factors including past academic performance, application essay, leadership experience and volunteer experience.

Winners Announced
The winners are: Kaitlyn Aldrich, Iowa State University, Civil Engineering; Olivia Geiger, University of Illinois Champaign, Civil Engineering; Brittany Shotwell, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Civil Engineering; Zachary Whitley, University of Minnesota Duluth, Civil Engineering, Marina Samp, Michigan Technological University, Environmental Engineering; and David Nowicki, University of Wisconsin-Platteville, Civil Engineering.
MSA President/CEO Gilbert Hantzsch said, “MSA is pleased to offer scholarships to these exceptional engineering students who have demonstrated academic excellence, leadership and a willingness to contribute through volunteer activities. We wish them continued success.”

Helping Others
In their applications, students revealed participation in diverse activities, but most emphasized a strong interest in math and science that led to their decision to pursue engineering. They want to help others while working in careers that interest them. One winner said, “Civil engineering will allow me to continue with my passion of helping others, and I cannot imagine a more rewarding career.”

Others are fascinated by the design of structures and transportation networks. They have volunteered in their communities and have helped with non-profit fundraisers.
