Engineers Foundation of Wisconsin

Sponsored by the Wisconsin Society of Professional Engineers, the EFW promotes engineering education through annual scholarships. These scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, community involvement, extracurricular activities and need.

The Louis C Geiger Scholarship is named after Louis C. Geiger. Louis, who as the 1968 WSPE President, advanced the engineering profession and our High School Students Awards Program.

The Yu-Hwa Terry Ni FREE Program scholarship is provided by Yu-Hwa Terry Ni, P.E. through the Funds for the Restoration and Enhancement of the Earth (FREE) Program.
