Scholarship Program

The Fairfield/Westchester Chapter of SIM is proud to sponsor two scholarships per year, awarding $2,500 per scholarship recipient.

This program was established in 2015 to promote and reward academic excellence in any of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics fields of study and to help foster the education of newer generations pursuing a career in our profession (or closely related professions).

Effective 2021, both scholarships will be named in memory of the program’s founder and long time FWSIM chapter member, Rino Nori.
