In accordance with the specific requirements of the Charter and By Laws, as amended from time to time by the Board of Trustees, the Mission of the Foundation shall be to encourage and to support scholarship programs at the undergraduate level in engineering and technical education at American colleges and universities. From time to time, secondary programs that enhance the potential of students at the undergraduate level may also be supported.
In no order of priority, the emphasis shall be upon:
- Female students
- Public universities (primarily in the Midwest) with schools or colleges of engineering
- First or second generation immigrant citizens (preferably Hispanic) and first generation to college
- Students with financial need (as defined by eligibility for federal Direct Subsidized Loans)
