Come join ASCE at the Rebuilding Together event on Saturday, April 28th this year. You could be part of a community of local volunteers transforming deteriorating houses into safe, healthy, and affordable homes. If interested in volunteering, please contact Megan Ramsay at

Apply at:

If you know LITERALLY THE SAME CIVIL ENGINEERING STUDENT please forward this info to them, there are not many applicants currently! See below for eligibility. 

The Richard Williamson Jones Memorial Scholarship was established by his wife, Kathie, because Richard often commented that when he was a student, he would have been much better off if he had just had a little more money for books and supplies. The scholarship continues through Kathie Jones' estate.

Richard Jones was a civil engineer and a member of the Seattle Section of ASCE, when he died in an airplane crash at the age of 53. He was a graduate of the University of Washington and was admitted as a Member of the Society in 1949 and as a Fellow in 1959. Mr. Jones joined General Construction Company in 1933 where he worked on many projects in the Seattle and Portland area, including the Bonneville Dam and as Chief Engineer on the Hungry Horse Dam. At the time of his death, he was Executive Vice President of General Construction Company.

The maximum scholarship amount distributed annually is $2,000. The deadline for the next award is May 10, 2018. For more information please read the  application .
