Engineers Alliance for the Arts is delighted to announce the 2023 recipients of the Chen Family Scholarship Award:

Lauren Mizerak-Mohun: Carlmont High School

Shrish Premkrishna: Livermore High School


Students who participated in our 2023 Student Impact Project and plan to pursue a career in engineering, design or construction were eligible to submit an application. The main objective of the grants is to provide financial support and incentive for students from underrepresented populations to pursue higher education in an Architecture, Engineering, or Construction (AEC)-related field. Each year, five inspired and deserving students receive a $1,000 grant award for college or trade school educational expenses.

Thank you to the Chen Family for their generous gift that made this scholarship award possible. The application period runs during the month of May and winners are announced in July each year. This merit-based scholarship awards students who have completed the Student Impact Project and plan to pursue an education in Engineering, Architecture or Construction at a 2-year or 4-year college/university or at an accredited trade school. We can’t wait to see how our winners shape the future of engineering!

2023 marks the second year of our scholarship grant program, but we want to ensure distribution of grants for decades to come so we can assist students interested in an AEC industry career. We have established a fundraising goal of $100,000 and need your help. With a tax-deductible contribution to the Scholarship Fund, you can help students pursue an AEC education, and support the future of the industry. Please contribute to our scholarship endowment by making a donation today. Thank you!
