ASHRAE Scholarship Program



Through its scholarships, ASHRAE seeks to motivate students and prospective students worldwide to pursue an engineering or technology career in the HVAC&R field. 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 26 years ASHRAE has awarded more than $1.5 million to over 300 deserving undergraduate and graduate students.

Beentjes_Trane_2015-108W.jpg“I was fortunate to receive the letter … informing me that I was the recipient of the Reuben Trane Scholarship as I was studying for my fourth mid-term exam…and I was unusually tired.  Your generosity turned the tide for my studying, and the exam.

I am supremely grateful for the scholarship that in one package addresses financial concerns and also bestows prestige on my efforts.  I realize there were many distinguished candidates who deserved the accolade of the Reuben Trane Scholarship and yet you selected me.  I thank you for recognizing the sacrifices I have made to get to this point.  One of my favorite quotations is from Charles Dickens’ novel David Copperfield “Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show.”  You, the ASHRAE’s Scholarship Trustees, are the most recent heroes of the pages of my life.  I thank you for reminding me that there are heroes. ”

Ivan Beentjes, University of Waterloo, Mechanical Engineering ASHRAE Reuben Trane Scholarship Recipient, 2015-2016

“With the help of ASHRAE, I am at a great place financially with my college expenses.  Thank you for recognizing a need for support of higher education, and for providing me this gift to enable me to succeed at my freshman year of engineering courses.”

Elizabeth Lynch, Iowa State University, Mechanical Engineering
ASHRAE High School Senior Scholarship Recipient, 2013-2014


"I am thankful to ASHRAE for their generosity and in giving me the opportunity to pursue my academic goals. Having the finances to take care of part of my educational expenses is an enormous relief and will allow me to involve myself more fully in research now and in the future and perhaps contribute towards the progress of the industry.”'
