STLE Philadelphia Section Scholarship Opportunity


The Philadelphia Section of the Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE) is offering graduate students the opportunity to apply for a scholarship for the 2021-2022 academic year. While preference will be given to those students studying or doing research related to tribology, the applications are open to any student pursuing a Graduate degree in the Physical Sciences, Engineering, Tribology, Mathematics or similar studies with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.

The Section awarded 26 scholarships ranging from $500 to $1,500 each over the last two years and has given nearly $72,000 to 55 deserving students over the past six years. We are excited to be able to continue to support these students, especially during this global pandemic.

In addition to the award, scholarship winners are profiled on the Section website (link) and in the STLE magazine, Tribology and Lubrication Technology. Profiles of last year’s awardees are attached. Students are invited to either make a presentation or display a poster at one of our Section meetings.

The application deadline is May 31st and award decisions will be made by the end of June. 

Questions should be directed to Jeremy Styer (jstyer@vanderbiltchemicals.com).
