Salzberg Family Supports Scholarships

Salzberg Family Supports Scholarships

The Salzberg Family Foundation has established the Ruth and Sam Salzberg Family Endowment to provide annual scholarships to mechanical engineering students who intend to pursue construction-related engineering--focusing on plumbing, heating and air conditioning, etc.--as a career. Sam Salzberg was a mechanical engineer who established the family business in heating, air conditioning and plumbing.

The fund was established with a commitment of $50,000. The foundation has recently pledged an additional $65,000.

“This scholarship will help meet one of the greatest needs of the Mechanical Engineering Department and enable one of our many highly-qualified students to devote their attention to preparing for a career in the construction industry,” said Avram Bar-Cohen, chair of mechanical engineering.

The first Salzberg Family Scholarship was awarded to Elizabeth Henningsgaard in 2007.
