Thursday, March 26, 2020
MANHATTAN — A Kansas State University student in architectural engineering has been awarded an ASHRAE national scholarship for the next academic year.
Owen Lutz, Garnett, sophomore in the GE Johnson Department of Architectural Engineering and Construction Science, will receive a two-year, $10,000 Reuben Trane Scholarship for 2020-21.
Awarded for $5,000 per year over two years, the Reuben Trane Scholarship was established in memory of The Trane Company founder, an engineer, inventor and business executive, whose manufacturing enterprise ranks today as one of the world’s largest in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration, or HVAC&R, industry.
The scholarship is available to undergraduate students enrolled full-time in a post-secondary educational institution and pursuing a Bachelor of Science or engineering degree in a course of study traditionally seen as a preparatory curriculum for the HVAC&R profession.
ASHRAE is a global society advancing human well-being through sustainable technology for the built environment. The society and its more than 56,000 members worldwide focus on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, refrigeration and sustainability.
