· 2016 Award Winners

Scholarship application due date is April 1, 2017.


The Composite Division has been offering a scholastic scholarship for numerous years in honor of the late Dr. Harold Giles, a past Composite Division Awards Chair. As a former University Professor at the University of North Carolina, Azdel employee, and GE employee, Harold Giles knew full well the value of scholarships to students. He was always a proponent of awarding worthy students and served the society well in this capacity.

Two $3500 scholarships will be offered—one for an undergraduate student and the second for a graduate student. These scholarship awards are open to outstanding students who not only maintained a good grade point average but also served their community, had some experience in the composite area, and are backed by solid reference letters from former professors and employers. If you are or know of worthy candidates for this scholarship, please consult the SPE Foundation scholarship website.

If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Dale Grove, Composite Division Awards Committee.
