Each year, the ACEC Dallas & Tarrant County Chapters provide a Summer Intern Program in an effort to bring a view of applied knowledge to interns from member firms. The ACEC Tarrant County also presents scholarships to winners of an essay contest. Please encourage your interns to take part in the program.
Field Visit(s) - We are currently working to organize a site visit to a project in Tarrant County. This site visit is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, July 18. More details will be provided in the coming weeks.
Scholarship Essay Contest – This year, Tarrant County ACEC will provide 3 - $1,500 scholarships to interns at member firms. Winners will be selected by the ACEC Education Committee through an essay and interview contest. Details and deadlines are attached.
Recognition at July 24 ACEC Luncheon – All interns are invited to attend the Tarrant County ACEC monthly luncheon (11:30 am-1:00 pm) on July 24 at the Petroleum Club in downtown Fort Worth. We will recognize all of our member firm interns at the luncheon and it will give you an opportunity to meet fellow interns. In addition, our scholarship award winners will be announced at this luncheon. We hope all of you can attend this event, regardless of your participation in the scholarship essay contest. If you are interested in attending, be sure to let your supervisor know so he/she can register you for the luncheon.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, as I serve as the Tarrant County ACEC Education Committee Chairperson. Be on the lookout for future correspondence throughout the summer and again, welcome!
