Get to know the scholars in a flash! The 2020 scholars:
Represent three Minnesota colleges
Pursue studies across five disciplines
Serve as leaders in more than six campus organizations related to engineering.
We are confident in the capacity of Minnesota’s undergraduate engineering students to influence the future of engineering. Why? Just look at what our scholars have achieved to date:
Co-authored two journal articles
Co-founded a new campus chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA)
Traveled abroad to build on-the-ground engineering skills
Designed a system to wash produce on a farm
Made design modifications in order to improve manufacturability of a new product.
Learn more about the dreams these students will power with the support of their Engineering Alliance Foundation Minnesota scholarship.
The scholarship program is the flagship effort of Engineering Alliance Foundation Minnesota. This is just one of many opportunities we provide to influence the future of engineering.
Scholarships are funded by our endowment as well as by individuals who are inspired to create a scholarship in honor of a cause, organization or individual. Thanks to our partners and the support of generous individuals, we can count on a strong future for Minnesota’s workforce.

Every year, Engineering Alliance Foundation Minnesota selects several aspiring engineers to receive critical educational support. Our undergraduate engineering scholarships provide financial investment at an important time in a student’s trajectory.
As a result, Engineering Alliance Foundation Minnesota scholars come one step closer to applying their passion, drive and skills to build Minnesota’s future as Professional Engineers.
A scholarship from Engineering Alliance Foundation Minnesota also brings the benefits of our broader engineering network to each student: mentorship, professional development and career connections.
2019’s scholars are ready to apply their skills through composite materials engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering and more. We look forward to welcoming a new cohort of future engineers in 2020.
We are pleased to announce the scholars pursuing undergraduate engineering degrees with financial support from the Minnesota Professional Engineers Foundation. Scholarships equip students to build skills, connections and experience for careers as engineers.
MPEF 2019 scholars represent chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, industrial & systems engineering and other fields. They’re enrolled in colleges throughout Minnesota.
But these students have a few things in common: passion for the engineering field, demonstrated leadership ability and the dedication to pursue a career in this challenging and rewarding field.
Meet the scholars
Proudly presenting the 2019 MPEF engineering scholarship cohort:
Javier Lara, Chemical Engineering, University of Minnesota Duluth
Jera Zellmann, Mechanical Engineering, University of Minnesota Duluth
Nathan Oliver, Electrical Engineering, Iron Range Engineering
Erick Sipila, Industrial & Systems Engineering, University of Minnesota – Twin Cities

Get to know more about our 2019 scholars and past scholarship recipients. Find out which student leads teams to build solar-powered cars, and which will use their degree in the sports industry field. One undergrad spends time outside the classroom snowmobiling and hunting. Another has undertaken travel for work and study on three continents. This student brings the same passion to campus as a founder of the college chapter of Engineers Without Borders. Learn more.
