WSU Industry for the Advancement of Composite Materials Engineering Scholarship

WSU Industry for the Advancement of Composite Materials Engineering Scholarship

The partnership between WSU and the composite industry includes the establishment of a scholarship for Composite Materials Engineering students.

In early 2002, Joe Cameron and Larry Rupprecht of RTP Company, along with Dr. Parsi, arranged for an annual golf outing event through the local branch of the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE).

The financial success of the event has continued through fantastic support from the local composite community and their supplier base. Five or more $1000 scholarships are awarded annually.
