Imagine if someone gave you up to $41,000 in cash to realize your dreams. That – plus full tuition and other education-related benefits –is what the SMART scholarship offers students majoring in science, engineering and mathematics. SMART scholars also get paid summer internships and a job placement after graduation. ASEE invited eight current SMART scholars to spend a day in Washington, D.C., and talk about what got them into engineering. Bios after the jump.

“After an introductory summer engineering program at Georgia Tech my junior year of high school, I knew engineering would be my major. My academic path has been very diverse…It was not until I considered graduate school and my current work designing intelligent robotic surveyor systems for unexplored terrain that a special, lasting interest was formed.”

“I really chose to become a mechanical engineer because I love to build and create things that will benefit others. I love to help people, and to see a smile on their faces is when I feel most accomplished.”

“After my father taught me the mechanical ins and outs of my first car, I took it upon myself to study the electrical system. I developed an interest in car stereos, and before I knew it, I was designing speaker boxes and upgrading my vehicle’s electrical backbone. The fact that I could use my car’s engine to spin a pulley on an alternator and generate current really pushed me towards the study of electrical power.”
