About the Scholarship

National Science Foundation logo

In 2011, AACC was awarded a $598,000 grant over five years from the National Science Foundation to support an increase in the number of academically talented students who graduate from AACC and either transfer to a four-year institution and enter the engineering workforce or directly enter the engineering technologies workforce. Formally named the Engineering Scholars Program: Increasing Access and Diversity, the program targets underrepresented groups of students but anyone with financial need is eligible.

The program is led by Alycia Marshall, Ph.D., AACC professor of Mathematics and principal investigator for the program; Richard Cerkovnik, Ph.D., professor and director of the AACC STEM Center and co-principal investigator; and Frank Lanzer, P.E., professor and department chair of Engineering and co-principal investigator.
