H. Scott Fogler Endowment, AIChE Chem-E-Car Competition® First Place Prize

To recognize Scott Fogler’s transformative impact on chemical engineering education, the AIChE Foundation has renamed and permanently endowed AIChE’s Annual Chem-E-Car Competition® First Place Prize in his honor.

Colleagues, friends and former students of Scott’s have established this endowment to honor his legacy and commitment to the education of students and the practice of chemical engineering. Scott founded AIChE’s signature Chem-E-Car Competition which has since been held throughout the world.

Scott was the 2010 AIChE President and is currently the Ame and Catherine Vennema professor of chemical engineering and the Arthur F. Thurnau professor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

The renaming of the Competition First Place Prize will be announced at the Annual AIChE Meeting and Student Conference in Minneapolis on October 29- November 3 2017.
