The 2021 CESASC Scholarship is open for application! The deadline is March 22, 2021.
CESASC is one of the largest and the most established Chinese-American professional organizations in Southern California. Founded in 1962, CESASC has been dedicated to promoting interests, aspirations, and professional excellence of Chinese-American engineers and scientists. CESASC provides career and educational advancement opportunities, technical exchange, fellowship, and community service. Particularly, CESASC offers annual scholarships to encourage young students to develop interests and pursue careers in the fields of science, engineering, and technology.
In the past ten years, CESASC gave away more than $100,000 in scholarships awarded to more than one hundred excellent students.
This year, we will continue our tradition and offer the following opportunities:
- Eight to ten CESASC scholarships,
- Three CESASC JHT scholarships for fundamental science（Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry）,
- Three Lisa Lu Foundation（盧燕基金會）scholarships for awardees majoring in literature and arts.
All the scholarship recipients will be invited to attend the CESASC Annual Convention and network with professionals in the fields. Graduate student recipients may also be invited to present their research work at the CESASC Annual Convention. Each scholarship recipient will have the opportunity to be paired up with a mentor who is a CESASC member.
The awardees will be announced by March 31, 2021. The awardees must attend the CESASC 2021 Annual Convention to receive the awards. The awardees are also strongly recommended to join CESASC as a member, commit themselves to volunteer at CESASC STEM program（e.g., mentoring middle/high school participants of STEM essay contest）, and help organizing future CESASC events and annual conventions. Regardless of the results, we encourage all applicants stay involved and participate in future CESASC activities and be part of CESASC family.
Please help us notify your fellow students about this opportunity. We look forward to hearing from all of you. Thank you for your interest and best of luck in your educational endeavor.
