The Chassis Plans Leadership in Engineering Scholarship is awarded twice each year to a student in either a lower division program or pursuing a Master’s degree or PhD in an engineering field.

This is a $1,500 scholarship that can be applied to any school-related expense.

Our Winter, 2015, Scholarship was won by Grace Bushnell who is a second year PhD student in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Michigan.

The Chassis Plans’ Leadership in Engineering Scholarship was founded to assist future engineers in pursuing their degree in an effort to continue America’s leadership in innovation.  As an engineering-driven company providing rugged computing solutions to industry and the military, we recognize that today’s engineering students will be the driving force for continued leadership in the future.

We ask the applicants to prepare an essay of 1,000 to 1,500 words about one of the following topics:

  • As technology advances, new sub-disciplines of engineering emerge. What do you see as the next new major type of engineering?
  • How could engineering education be improved to produce the best engineers possible?
  • The FAA is limiting use of UAVs (drones) in US airspace.  What are the ramifications of limiting this technology?
  • Besides personal photos and videos, what could a UAV be used for in domestic airspace?
