ACEC Scholarships

ACEC of Michigan's Scholarship Program was created to promote the profession and to provide financial support to those individuals pursuing careers in engineering and surveying. On an annual basis, the Council awards scholarships to deserving college students who have completed their freshmen year and are enrolled in an ABET accredited engineering or surveying program. Recipients of the awards will be evaluated in the following areas: work experience, extra-curricular and community activity, references, grade point average, and a written essay.

Applicants must have worked for a private engineering, architectural or surveying firm in the past 24 months.

Steve Wagner Scholarship

As a member of the Capitol Club and Michigan Society of Association Executives, Steve was well respected by his peers and colleagues and is known for his honesty and integrity.

Throughout his career, Steve has always been a large proponent of community service and has given many hours himself to church and community programs. Steve has also been a strong proponent of education. ACEC/M has created this scholarship in honor of Steve Wagner to award those engineering and surveying students who, like Steve, are active in the community and find it important and necessary to give something back.
