College Scholarships

Attention college students! Are you currently an engineering student planning a career in the Baltimore Area? Did you know that ASHRAE would like to invest in your education? Each year, the Baltimore Chapter of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers offers scholarships to college students pursuing their Bachelor's Degree in an ASHRAE‑related field. Among other specific criteria, scholarship eligibility is limited to students residing in, or moving to, the Baltimore Chapter assigned area as a permanent resident (ASHRAE Region III, Chapter 025).

Last year the Baltimore Chapter was pleased to award scholarships ranging from $1250 to $1500, to college students successfully competing for these funds.

This year the Scholarship Committee is once again looking for the best and brightest students to apply, and is accepting applications for college scholarships. Applications will be accepted until February 1, 2018 and will be reviewed by the committee anonymously for award to students directly during the first quarter of 2018. To determine if you meet the eligibility requirements for scholarship consideration by the Baltimore Chapter, please review the following specific criteria generally grouped by importance:

  1. ASHRAE field of training.
  2. Applicant is in an accredited course in recognized college (or pregram pre-approved by ASHRAE Board).
  3. Applicant is matriculating for a degree in an ASHRAE related engineering field.
  4. Applicant is residing in, or moving to the Baltimore Chapter assigned area (permanent resident).
  5. Applicant is working in the Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration (HVAC&R) field.
  6. Applicant is the son or daughter of a Baltimore chapter member, living or deceased.
  7. Applicant has high scholastic standing or average from previous year.
  8. Financial need.
  9. Veteran with an Honorable Discharge or member of United States Armed Services.

Points are awarded based on each applicant's demonstration of the above criteria. Criteria items 1 through 5 are weighted greater than items 6 through 9, although all criteria are important in the final consideration of awards.

College Scholarship Application:

Once you have determined you meet the eligibility criteria, you may download the application form and send it to the scholarship chairperson indicated in the form. 

Your completed application and a current official (sealed) college transcript must be mailed and postmarked no later than February 1, 2018. Mail to:

ASHRAE Baltimore High School Scholarships

The Baltimore Chapter of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE Region III, Chapter 025) is pleased to offer scholarships to select high school students in the Baltimore area who participate in the ASHRAE Baltimore Chapter Student Design Competition, an annual chapter event. Among other specific criteria, scholarship eligibility is limited to students who are on a course to enter a college or university to pursue their Bachelor’s Degree in an ASHRAE-related engineering field.

Applications will be reviewed anonymously by the ASHRAE Baltimore Scholarship Committee for award to students directly at our annual ASHRAE Baltimore Chapter meeting themed "Student Night". This meeting is scheduled to take place in early May, so the application deadline indicated below cannot be extended.

Applicant Minimum Eligibility Requirements

  1. Eligible applicants must intend to pursue undergraduate studies in the field of engineering.
  2. Applicant has been accepted/admitted** to a university or junior college that is either of the following: (1) Is accredited by one of the following two organizations: The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), The Partnership for Air Conditioning, Heating, Refrigeration Accreditation (PAHRA); (2) Is a host of a recognized ASHRAE student branch.
  3. Applicant has submitted an official (sealed) high school transcript.
  4. Applicant has submitted one letter of recommendation from a teacher or community leader.
  5. Applicant has participated in the annual ASHRAE Baltimore Chapter Student Design Competition (or is registered and intends to participate later this year).

Note for Criteria 2** The purpose is to establish the applicant's intent to attend a school with a qualified engineering program. If acceptance has not yet been established (usually with a formal acceptance letter), the applicant will not be disqualified if a college application has been submitted to the intended university or junior college, and this is indicated within the application.

Submission of Scholarship Application

Once you have determined you meet the eligibility criteria, and have either registered for or participated in the annual ASHRAE Baltimore Student Design Competition, complete this application form and mail it to the current Student Activities chairperson of the ASHRAE Baltimore Chapter, indicated below.
