In 2011, the Capital Area Section created our Student Scholarship Fund to support the studies of a University of Texas at Austin student who is active in the UT ITE student chapter. For more information please contact the Scholarship Committee chairperson, Jake Gutekunst.
The 2018 Scholarship Application for the Joint TexITE and Western District Spring Meeting in Keystone, Colorado is available here. Scholarships (including letters of recommendation) must be received electronically or postmarked by 11:59PM March 13, 2018 to be valid. Send scholarship documents to the attention of Jake Gutekunst, P.E., 10814 Jollyville Rd, Bldg 4, Ste 300, Austin, Texas, 78759.
Electronic delivery preferred, but hard copy is accepted as long it is postmarked by the due date. All transcripts are needed: undergraduate and graduate studies. Letters of recommendation should be sent directly to the Scholarship Committee Chair (Jake Gutekunst) from the reference writer.
Each year, in October, the current Section president appoints several members to form a nominating committee. They contact the membership to develop a list of potential new officers for the election in December. This committee then serves to make the final vote tally and "certify" the election at the annual Holiday Social meeting.
