Many of our students in Civil Engineering, particularly upper division students, are able to find and maintain a part-time engineering job in the professional community. However, there are also numerous undergraduates who find it more feasible to combine their coursework with part-time work on campus. For these students, the Ed and Mary Schroeder Fund provides relevant work experience, one-on-one mentoring either by a faculty member or a graduate student, and critical financial support.
Donors to the Ed and Mary Schroeder Fund provide undergraduate students 5-20 paid hours/week to assist a faculty member’s research group.
Nearly 100 donors have honored Ed and Mary Schroeder by investing in this fund which was established in 2005.
