Help support ChE education

We are now accepting donations for the 2009 Nicholas P. Chopey Scholarship Award

Bringing recognition to the value of the chemical engineering profession and striving to continually advance it have been goals for this magazine since its founding more than 106 years ago. To help cultivate new talent, CE established the annual Chopey Scholarship for Chemical Engineering Excellence in memory of Nicholas (Nick) P. Chopey, our former Editor In Chief. Nick carried many torches at CE including those for the Kirkpatrick and Personal Achievement award competitions that are held in alternating years. Meanwhile, he was a recognized authority on the chemical process industries (CPI) and a champion of the practical, how-to literature upon which outstanding CPI achievement finds foundation.

To honor and continue Nick’s valuable and lasting contributions to the chemical engineering profession, CE will match up to $10,000 of all donations for the 2009 scholarship fund that are received prior to June 1, 2009.

Donations. Please send your donations to the following address prior to June 1, 2009:
