CCBC Foundation receives $15,000 endowed scholarship from
the American Society of Plumbing Engineers
Scholarship named after treasured ASPE member John Jung
Baltimore, Md. – The American Society of Plumbing Engineers, Baltimore Chapter recently awarded the Community College of Baltimore County an endowed scholarship of $15,000 to go toward students who are seeking a degree in Plumbing Engineering. Students pursuing a Mechanical or Fire Protection Engineering degree will be considered for the scholarship as well.
The scholarship is formally being named the John Jung Scholarship in honor of one of the charter members of the ASPE Baltimore Chapter who passed away in 2009. Mr. Jung was a treasured member of ASPE and was the catalyst for starting the scholarship fund.
Current ASPE President Charlie Kozlowski says Jung was a great man and establishing the scholarship fund was important to him. He wanted to create more opportunities for students interested in the field by helping those who had a financial need.
“The scholarship is really to increase awareness of plumbing as a viable career option,” said Kozlowski. “It will also give people interested in the field more opportunities to continue their education.”
To qualify, students must be enrolled in the Engineering Transfer program working towards a degree in Plumbing, Mechanical or Fire Protection Engineering, in good academic standing and have a financial need.
Endowed scholarships are a great way to leave a legacy and help students get an education in the process. To find out how, contact Cathy Birkelien at 443-840-3335.
