Carl & Bernitta Burtt Scholarship

This named scholarship was established by the children of Carl and Bernitta Burtt in honor of their parents to benefit a student majoring in any course of study in the College of Arts, Letters and Social Sciences. Carl Burtt was the second eldest son in a family of thirteen. He dropped out of school at the age of twelve in order to support his brothers and sisters. Although he was unable to complete his own education, he always maintained the value of a good education. Carl was an avid reader and a history buff. He enjoyed learning and made a point to pass this enjoyment on to his children. Carl married the former Bernitta Wilcox in 1944 and they had six children. Though she did not finish high school, Bernitta valued education and vowed that all of her children would complete high school and would be supported in their effort to attend college. They taught their children that an education was an asset that would always serve them well, and was something that each would keep with them for life. Recipients must be of sophomore status with a GPA of 3.0 or higher and demonstrate financial need.

ASME Student Design Expositions provide a platform for all engineering students to showcase their innovative design and build projects to a broad audience. Bringing practicing engineers, faculty and students into one venue, this program also provides educational and professional development opportunities for exhibitors as well as spectators. For students, it is an opportunity to demonstrate their products or present their design concepts to potential employers and even investors. For industry leaders, the Expos are like career fairs in reverse; an opportunity to observe the landscape of student design, get to know extraordinary engineering students in the region and see first-hand the innovative ideas and skills students can bring to their companies.
