Bioengineering student Assul Larancuent ’23 was named as the 2020-2021 recipient of the Rochelle Nicolette Perry Memorial Scholarship from the Society of Women Engineers (SWE).
The Rochelle Nicolette Perry Memorial Scholarship is to be awarded annually to a currently-enrolled college student studying engineering/engineering technology in New York or Iowa. They need to be an active SWE member, involved in planning and participating in events in their community or other organizations.
“Receiving this scholarship is an honor, it means even more coming from the Society of Women Engineers. For 70 years SWE has been advocating for women in engineering fields and providing opportunities for mentorship and career advancement. I am excited to grow as an engineer and even more, to continue to pave the way that has already been started by SWE for more female representation in engineering,” said Larancuent.
