Robert Galley Scholorship

Several years ago the Northern California Section of ISA received $5,000 from the family of Robert L. Galley to establish a scholarship in his memory. The money was initially put in our checking account while the Board tried to figure out how to satisfy the criteria the family had in mind when they gave us the money for the scholarship. Bob was well known for his expertise in the area of fluid flow and the scholarship was to be awarded for a college student's work in that area.

Several years ago the Board established a separate savings account for this fund, but had not established the formal criteria for awarding the funds from the account for a scholarship. The current problem is that interest income on the account does not generate sufficient revenue to provide a meaningful scholarship on an annual basis. This year the Board is working on a plan that will fund the scholarship and establish the criteria for the award.

The primary criteria for the scholarship award are that a paper be written and presented on some aspect of fluid flow. We will be promoting the availability of this scholarship to our student section and the local colleges in our area. The winning paper will be presented at NORCAL TECH 2004 at the California Maritime Academy on May 12th or 13th , 2004. We will award a $500 scholarship to the student submitting the winning paper.

The success of our first NORCAL TECH will determine the frequency of that event in future years. If NORCAL TECH becomes an annual event we will use that event as the location for the presentation of the winning paper and the $500 scholarship.

Like all of the Norcal programs and projects, this project will require volunteer time and effort to make it happen properly. If you are interested in participating on our scholarship committee please contact Norcal's president, Suzanne Pippin at (800) 214-4499 x403.
