Society of Tribologists & Lubrication Engineers Scholarship


The Philadelphia Section of the Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE) is offering undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to apply for a scholarship for the 2022-2023 academic year. While preference will be given to those students studying or doing research related to tribology, the applications are open to any sophomore or above pursuing a Bachelors or Graduate degree in the Physical Sciences, Engineering, Tribology, Mathematics or similar studies with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.

The application is linked below & the deadline is May 31st. Award decisions will be made by the end of June.

The Section awarded 39 scholarships ranging from $500 to $1,500 each over the last three years and has given nearly $85,000 to 68 deserving students over the past seven years. Thanks to our generous corporate and individual donors, our scholarship levels have remained constant throughout the global pandemic.

In addition to the award, scholarship winners are profiled on the Section website (STLE Philadelphia Section link) and in the STLE magazine, Tribology and Lubrication Technology. Profiles of last year’s awardees are attached. Two UMD students were among our awardees. We also invite the students to either make a presentation or display a poster at one of our Section meetings.
