New Scholarship Honors ASHRAE’s First Female President

A scholarship created in memory of Presidential Member Lynn G. Bellenger, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, has been announced for the 2013-2014 school year.

The one-year $ 5,000 Lynn G. Bellenger Scholarship will be awarded to a deserving female undergraduate engineering student pursuing a degree in a field related to HVAC&R.

“Lynn was a role model for us all, and her dedication to energy modeling helped to promote a more sustainable world,” ASHRAE President Tom Watson said. “Through this scholarship we hope to build upon her legacy by encouraging students to pursue excellence in the field of engineering, just as she did.”

More information on the scholarship and details on how to apply can be found atwww.ashrae.org/scholarships.

Bellenger served as ASHRAE’s president during 2010-2011 and was ASHRAE’s first woman president in its 116 year history. Her presidential theme was Modeling a Sustainable World; she was a recognized expert in energy management, with a strong focus on the need for energy modeling to help create and refine more efficient buildings.

During her time as president, Bellenger promoted sustainable design, which according to her, “ignited a passion in people that is changing the world.” The first ASHRAE Energy Modeling Conference was also held during her presidency.

Bellenger passed away in 2011. To honor her legacy, ASHRAE established the Lynn G. Bellenger Scholarship, which is being used to recognize women in engineering. Contributions to help fund the scholarship are being accepted at www.ashrae.org/bellenger.

ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is a building technology society with more than 50,000 members worldwide. The Society and its members focus on building systems, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, refrigeration and sustainability within the industry. Through research, standards writing, publishing and continuing education, ASHRAE shapes tomorrow’s built environment today.
