The Puget Sound Section mails AIChE Minority Scholarship applications to Puget Sound area high schools in early Spring.  The letters state a specific date for the Applications to be returned to the Local Section.

Or, applications may be downloaded (pdf) from the AIChE National website (http://students.aiche.org/pdfs/macschol04_incoming.pdf).  For competition in the Puget Sound Section, mail completed applications to Daniel Wu; c/o Kennedy/Jenks Consultants; 32001 - 32nd Ave. South, Suite 100; Federal Way, WA  98001.
