With a gift of $200,000. former Clark School dean George E. Dieter and his wife Nancy have established a merit-based scholarship for a mechanical engineering student involved in the Women in Engineering Program. The scholarship will be named in honor of their daughter, Barbara, who passed away from cancer before the age of 30.

"The Dieters' generous gift will help the department recognize and reward the growing numbers of academically brilliant female undergraduate students in mechanical engineering," said Avram Bar-Cohen, chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. "This is one of the most urgent needs facing the Department today."
