Cleveland State student Beau Neidich is the recent recipient of two scholarships to UTC, the UTC Assets and Dean’s Merit Scholarships available through the College of Engineering and Computer Science. These scholarships provide academic and financial support for students majoring in Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. 

Each year, up to 12 students will be selected to receive the UTC Assets Scholarship. Each awarded student will receive a scholarship of $7,400 per year for two years. Four out of the 12 students may be awarded for the third year. Ms. Neidich was also awarded the Dean’s Merit Scholarship which is an additional $1,000 for the 2020-2021 school year.

“To be awarded these scholarships is a tremendous financial relief,” said Ms. Neidich. “I am very appreciative to be a recipient of such generosity, because now I can focus on what really matters, which is learning. Being able to take my mind off monetary concerns is a breath of fresh air!”

During her time at CSCC, she participated in the Statewide Mathematics competition in Calculus last semester, taking home second place. In addition, she was an active member of the Engineering Club at Cleveland State, as well as in her community—serving as a mentor for students who want to pursue a career in the STEM fields. 

Dr. Mathai Augustine, CSCC Math Professor, said, “Beau has been one of the best students in my classes. She is very smart, hardworking and always tried do her best in class. She was always very helpful to her peers, organizing study groups that will also benefit her fellow students.”

CSCC was a great stepping stone,” said Ms. Neidich. “The college has a great articulation agreement with UTC and simply a good connection with the university, which has continued to get stronger every year since the Tennessee Promise.”

Ms. Neidich is a graduate of Walker Valley High School and is the daughter of Aaron and Barbara Neidich of Bozeman, Montana, both Cleveland State graduates. Ms. Neidich plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from UTC.
