Nicholas True, a mechanical engineering student at The University of Tennessee Chattanooga, has been awarded a $10,000 national scholarship by the American Council of Engineering Companies in Washington, D.C.  His selection was based on academic achievement, extracurricular activities, a written essay, and collegiate recommendations.

Earlier in 2014, True was one of two students to be awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the American Council of Engineering Companies  (ACEC of Tennessee).  He was also a 2013 scholarship winner.

True also received the Dorothy and Arthur Crouch Memorial Scholarship from the Tennessee Engineering Foundation.  It is valued at $4,000.

During the academic year, True works 18 hours each week at Mesa Associates, Inc., in the Hydro Power Generation group. He works a full 40 hour week during the summer.

The last Tennessee engineering student to receive the national scholarship was Ipshita Thomas, a UTC alumna.  She won the award in 2009.

The American Council of Engineering Companies of Tennessee (ACEC of Tennessee) is a statewide organization of approximately 100 engineering firms.  ACEC of Tennessee has chapters in Nashville, East Tennessee, Southeast Tennessee, and Memphis.  The organization works to improve business practices of engineering firms and to enhance public awareness and understanding of the value of engineering services.
