ISA Alaska scholarships
The ISA Alaska Section has awarded $17,500 in scholarships for the 2013–2014 school year. The pool of talent this year was impressive, and the selection was difficult. The award comes from the Tom Quimby Memorial Endowment, started through the ISA matching funds program with a principal of $100,000, and the section’s own fundraising activities.
In the past five years, the Alaska Section has awarded about $75,000 to students in engineering and technical colleges. This is quite a feat for a section with fewer than 150 members.
