What the ASHRAE Scholarship Meant to Me

Past scholarship recipients express their gratitude and share how their ASHRAE scholarship helped them achieve their educational goals.

“Thanks to the scholarship, I have had more time to focus on my studies and competitions! The competition I am currently working on is the Solar District Cup for the Department of Energy developing a power purchase agreement for a photovoltaic and electrical battery storage system. The competition is extremely interesting and I have been able to dedicate extra time to the competition's development thanks to the ASHRAE financial help.”

"I would like to extend my most sincere thank you to the Scholarship Trustees and Donors that make the student scholarships possible. This award has helped me significantly in pursuing my goal of designing a more sustainable future. I look forward to maintaining involvement with ASHRAE as my career unfolds."

“It is such an honor to be the recipient of a scholarship named for ASHRAE’s first woman president. It will allow me to cut back my hours at work, focus more on my education, and become more involved in department organizations like ASHRAE. My coursework and my growing involvement with ASHRAE have affirmed for me my decision to pursue a career in this industry, specifically in HVAC design.”

“I would like to extend my since gratitude for being named the recipient of the 2019 Reuben Trane Scholarship. The Kansas State student branch chapter of ASHRAE has afforded me the opportunity to meet numerous professional in the HVACR industry, and to connect with some of our great faculty. I greatly appreciate ASHRAE’s commitment to furthering the education of engineering students, and hope to pay it forward as a future engineer and ASHRAE member.”

“I want to thank you for awarding me with the generous Setty Family Foundation Scholarship, for the 2018-2019 academic year. Please know that this award will be put to good use. I look forward to expanding my knowledge of the HVAC industry and pursing opportunities where I can have a positive impact on the industry. Again, thank you for your generosity.”


Through its scholarships, ASHRAE seeks to motivate students and prospective students worldwide to pursue an engineering or technology career in the HVAC&R field, part of the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) industry. The Society’s Scholarship Program also serves the public interest by aiding in the education of men and women to become qualified to practice as engineers in HVAC&R.

Over the course of 30 years ASHRAE has awarded over $2.25 million to 400+ deserving students.
