CE scholarship applications open
Chemical Engineering is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for its annual Nicholas P. Chopey scholarship program.
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 in 1902. In late 2007, Chemical Engineering established the scholarship in memory of the magazine’s former Editor in Chief.
Applicant qualifications.Applicants to the program must be current third-year students who are enrolled in a full-time undergraduate course of study in chemical engineering at one of the following four-year colleges or universities:

• University of Oklahoma
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a one-time-only award that may be used for undergraduate study.
