BREWER, MAINE- Every June for the last 23 years, the Maine Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers has run a golf tournament to raise money toward a scholarship for University of Maine students.

With over 70 participants this year, the Maine Section of the ASCE raised $4,700. Typically the scholarships are given to two students during the spring semester, and are awarded by the Department of Civil Engineering.

“Of all the activities Maine ASCE undertakes, I think our most important work is in supporting and encouraging students.  Recent publicity about the state of our nation’s infrastructure speaks to the critical work that Civil Engineers do every day,” said the Maine Section of the ASCE President and Northstar Hydro, Inc. President Ellen O’Brien, PE.

“For the last four years that I have organized this event, I have witnessed the generosity our industry has for future engineers. The outpouring of financial support from engineering firms and our industry partners to this golf tournament has made a real difference in the lives of many students,” said CES, Inc. Project Engineer Chip Haskell, PE.

UMaine students who are interested in applying for the scholarships should contact the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Maine through its website: http://civil.umaine.edu/prospective-students/scholarships/scholarship-qualifications/

CES has organized the golf tournament for the Maine Section of the ASCE since 2008 when Travis Noyes, PE joined CES.

The Maine Section of ASCE was founded in 1950 to augment national membership benefits, provide topical engineering information, and to advance and promote the engineering profession within Maine.

CES, Inc. provides civil and environmental consulting and land surveying services to both public and private clients. In business since 1978, CES employs approximately 70 professionals across six offices located in Brewer, Bar Harbor, Lewiston, Machias, Presque Isle, and Waterville.
