Since 1998, the CIAC budget included funds for Endowed Matching Scholarships by providing a $10,000 match for a CIAC member who pledges $15,000 for a $25,000 named scholarship.  Donations can be made over a period of time, up to five years, to achieve the minimum funding.

The scholarship presentation ceremony is held each year at the College Station Hilton.  The ceremony is planned and conducted by the Sigma Lambda Chi Honor Society.

During the event, a representative from each scholarship provider presents their scholarship certificate to the deserving student and shares a reserved table at the banquet that follows.

At the 2016 ceremony, 245 students received $514,030 in scholarships.

The financial support provided to these appreciative students enhances their opportunities to pursue degrees and further the department’s reputation for excellence within the industry.
