We strongly believe that quality education is crucial in molding the future generation of engineering leaders, which is why we are thrilled to announce that the ACEC New York Scholarship Fund is our monthly cause. Being a proud contributor to the fund and an esteemed member of ACEC New York, we are dedicated to helping students and empowering them to become innovators in the growing fields of tomorrow.

We are excited to offer our support to the ACEC New York Scholarship Fund and its goal of inspiring talented students to pursue engineering careers. Our feeling is that by contributing to the development of a robust pipeline into the engineering field, we can help meet the requirements of the state’s expanding economy and uphold the accomplishments of both public and private works.

The ACEC New York Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to undergraduate engineering students in New York State to promote the consulting engineering profession. Since the program’s inception in 2002, the council has awarded $1,105,000 collectively to 380 high-achieving engineering students attending New York State colleges and universities, fulfilling ACEC New York’s goal of nurturing future engineers.

Each fall, the Scholarship Committee visits colleges and universities throughout New York State to talk to engineering students about consulting engineering and to present the scholarship program. Applying students are judged on their grades, school, and work experiences, as well as an essay. The Scholarship Committee then determines the winners, and awards are presented in the spring.

In 2022, the program awarded two scholarships for $10,000 each and several $2,500 and $5,000 named scholarships, named for the donating firm or in memory of an individual, or both.

At Infinite Cares, we are dedicated to contributing to the community and making a positive difference in the world. We firmly believe that endorsing education and promoting excellence in engineering and architecture is crucial to achieving our mission. It would be wonderful if you could join us in supporting this noble cause and playing a part in shaping the future of our industry.
