The Canton Regional Society of Professional Engineers (CRSPE) is inviting Stark County engineering students to apply for its local scholarships. Applications are due by June 1.

To be eligible for a CRSPE scholarship, a student must be enrolled in an accredited Ohio College of Engineering and must be a legal resident of Stark County. The scholarships are for students who will be juniors or seniors next school year, and expect to receive their bachelor’s degree in engineering between May 2014 – May 2015. Grants are not available to students in graduate courses.

Selection criteria will include accumulated grades, years of study completed, need, and civic activities. Applications can be obtained by emailing bfonte@starkparks.com, visiting the Stark Community Foundation’s website at www.starkcf.org, or visiting the Canton Joint Engineering Council’s website at www.cjecnet.com and looking under “Member Societies” for CRSPE.

The regional Society’s scholarship committee will review the applications and select finalists. Telephone interviews may be conducted as well. The Society plans to announce the recipients of the grants at the end of June 2013.
