New Hampshire Society of Professional Engineers State Scholarship Program Information
Who funds the scholarship program?
Scholarships for engineering students are made possible through the generous contributions of NHSPE members, donor Corporations, and fund-raising activities. The intent of the scholarship is to encourage growth and career development at the state level within the areas of Civil, Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Chemical, and other engineering disciplines.
Who is Eligible for the Scholarships?
Scholarships are granted to high school seniors or college undergraduate students who are currently or will be enrolled in an Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) accredited engineering program. High school applicants must be in-state (NH) students and preference will be given to college students planning to attend a New Hampshire university or college. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, academic achievement, and general community involvement.

Your contribution enables the NHSPE State Board of Directors to award a greater number of scholarships. Your contribution is tax deductible
Contribution Levels and Benefits
In return for your generous contribution, donors will be recognized to a wide readership of engineering professionals and will also receive a complementary one-year subscription of the quarterly publication The Observer. The Observer is a statewide publication with a current readership of over 230 Professional Engineers. Its purpose is to increase the general awareness of current National and Statewide events relating to the Engineering community and also to maintain an awareness of how NHSPE is working for you and your profession. Additionally, all State Scholarship donors will be automatically listed in The Observer as well as on the NHSPE web-site as a contributor to our states educational needs for the Engineering profession.
Suggested contribution levels are set as follows:
- Gold: Over $500
- Silver: $250 to $500
- Bronze: Up to $250
Any contribution level is greatly appreciated
What are the NSPE and NHSPE?
The National Society of Engineers (NSPE) is the only engineering society that represents Licensed Professional Engineers (PE's) across all disciplines. Founded in 1934, NSPE strengthens the engineering profession by promoting engineering licensure and ethics, advocating and protecting PE’s legal rights at the national and state levels, publishing news of the profession, providing continuing education opportunities, and much more. NSPE serves over 60,000 members and the public through 54 state and territorial societies and more than 500 chapters. The New Hampshire Society of Professional Engineers (NHSPE) is the state society of NSPE. NHSPE represents engineers in the legislative process, encourages professional registration of qualified engineers, creates a public awareness of engineering, sponsors educational programs, and supports both professional and technical growth of all engineers.
Some of Our Goals
- To formulate high ethical standards for the practice of engineering and to lead the profession in adhering to these principles.
- To help establish educational standards for engineering and to provide learning opportunities that enable licensed engineers to maintain practice competency.
- To incorporate engineering principles and perspectives in government decisions that protect the public and foster technological developmental.
- To stimulate student interest in mathematics and scientific principles that underlie a technological society and to guide those who express an interest in engineering.
- To provide forums that focus these goals on the licensed practice of engineering in construction, education, government, industry, and private practice.
Our Fundamental Values
Professionalism requires engineers to place public welfare before personal gain. Public trust in the integrity of engineering is essential to the prosperity of our profession. This interrelationship is the foundation of our value system.
