POTSDAM - Three Clarkson University students have been awarded scholarships from Tau Beta Pi, the oldest engineering honor society in the United States.
Jared D. Smith of Bay Shore, Sydney M. Laramie of Boonville and Thomas P. Rogers of Upper Black Eddy, Pa., are among the 200 undergraduate students selected nationwide to receive awards of $2,000 for their senior year of engineering study.
Smith, vice president of the Tau Beta Pi chapter at Clarkson, is a senior majoring in environmental engineering with a minor in environmental and occupational health science. He plans to pursue a masters and/or doctoral degree in environmental science and engineering with an eye toward a career in environmental engineering focusing on chemical fate and transport, climate change, and sustainability.
Laramie is a senior with a double major in chemical engineering and chemistry. She intends to pursue a doctorate in chemical engineering.
Rogers is a senior majoring in mechanical engineering. He most likely will go on to graduate school, he says.
All Tau Beta Pi scholarships are awarded on the competitive criteria of high scholarship, campus leadership and service, and promise of future contributions to the engineering profession.
