ASHE NCNJ congratulates the winners of our 2020 scholarships!
The North-Central NJ ASHE is pleased to announce the 2020 scholarship winners. Since 1995 our section has awarded $198,000 in scholarships to students actively pursuing engineering degrees. Part of our mission is encouraging new engineers into the industry. Below are our current winners in both the Student category and Member category.
First Place Winner of the Student Category - $5,000
"My name is Bryce Totten and I am a Junior Civil Engineering major at The College of New Jersey. I plan to graduate in 2022 and look to pursue a masters degree in construction management. Last summer, I interned with Ferreira Construction working on the New Jersey Turnpike and I plan to intern with them again this upcoming summer. My plans post graduation involve working while studying part time to obtain my masters degree. I have participated in intramural sports, including joining the schools club baseball team, and have also volunteered at numerous organizations. I have been on the dean’s list the last 3 years and maintain a 3.7 GPA."
Second Place Winner of the Student Category - $3,500
"My name is Savalia Shivani and I am currently a Junior Civil Engineering student at The College of New Jersey. Last summer I interned at a geotechnical firm in South Plainfield, and this upcoming summer I’m planning to work at the asphalt company Earle in Jackson. I want to leave a lasting impact through my work and so a personal goal of mine is to eventually get my PE license. I am a member of TCNJ’s chapters of ASCE (current vice president), and the Society of Woman Engineers. I am also a member of TCNJ Women’s’ Rugby team and enjoy volunteer work, especially mentoring and exposing young girls to the STEM program. Currently I am on the deans’ list."
Third Place Winner of the Student Category - $3,000
"My name is Anes Younis, I am currently a senior civil engineering student at Rutgers University School of Engineering in New Brunswick, NJ. My favorite two classes are transportation engineering and construction management. I am also a participant in the James J. Slade Scholars Honor Program at Rutgers, In which I can do independent research in my senior year and credits will be counted towards my 5 years combined BS/MS program. My dream is to become a professional engineer in a creative company in which I can leave an impact and add value to the organization. I had three internships throughout my undergraduate study, the most recent one was sponsored by NASA and the National Science foundation, in which I was working on a project to use geospatial and GIS technologies to plan for smart cities and enhance construction management. I am really proud that I am an Egyptian American in the Civil Engineering Industry."
Winner of the Member Category - $3,500
"My name is Dan Kats and I recently graduated from Penn State in May of 2020 with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering and minor in Entrepreneurship. During his time at Penn State, I was involved in Kijenzi, a social venture working to implement 3D printing in the healthcare industry in low/middle income countries and had spent 3 months over the last several years in Kenya supporting the launch of this start-up business. Since graduating this year, I recently started as a full-time Senior Transportation Analyst at Johnson & Johnson, supporting the operations of North America pharmaceutical shipments. I currently reside in Hoboken, NJ, with my girlfriend, Bridget, and their large Newfoundland pup, Millie. In my free time, I enjoy going to the shore, traveling (when we could!) and long walks with Millie."
The History of our Scholarship Program
The NC-NJ Section has continuously offered annual scholarships to any engineering student within our local universities/colleges. The amount has steadily increased over the years. Typically, we have offered 3 to 4 scholarships including (i) Student Scholarships ($3K-$5K each) awarded to north-central NJ engineering students, and since 2012, one Undergraduate Scholarship ($3.5K) awarded to an ASHE member’s child without restrictions on the major area of study.
The recipients, along with their family and school representatives, are invited to the dinner ceremony as our guests. The annual Golf Tournament is the primary source of funding for the scholarship program. To date, our section has awarded over $198,000 in scholarships.
