Two scholarships of $1000 each have been established in memory of Prof. Chad Bennington, who passed away suddenly in February 2010. The scholarships will be funded by an endowment raised from contributions by many of Dr. Bennington’s friends and colleagues as well as the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and the Faculty of Applied Science.
In recognition of Dr. Bennington’s strong commitment to the pulp and paper industry, the scholarships will be awarded to undergraduate students in Chemical and Biological Engineering who demonstrate interest, leadership, and academic accomplishment in pulp and paper related technologies. The awards will be made on recommendation of the Scholarships and Prizes Committee of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering. The first awards will be presented in the Fall of 2011.
