Scholarships

Scholarships for Students in the College of Engineering and Computer Science.
The Cacioppo Endowed Scholarship was established in 1996 in honor and memory of Anthony J. Cacioppo, Ph.D., former chair of the Wright State Department of Biomedical and Human Factors Engineering, who passed away in 1996. Dr. Cacioppo came to Wright State with an impressive record of accomplishment including being chief scientist of Foreign Technology at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. As a visiting professor in 1986, Dr. Cacioppo developed the Human Factors Engineering Program. His efforts in the program resulted in obtaining ABET accreditation in 1994. He received the ‘87-‘88 Teaching Excellence Award from the CECS, and became Department Chair in 1991, continuing to teach seven courses each year. The purpose is to provide scholarships for students majoring in Human Factors Engineering.
The Biomedical Engineering Scholarship was started in 1985 out of Campus Scholarship Campaign payroll deductions. The Scholarship is awarded by the Biomedical Engineering Program and given annually to students majoring in Biomedical Engineering.
Cary Michael Jokela grew up in Twinsburg, Ohio, where he graduated from Chamberlin High School. Cary entered Wright State in the fall of 1995 with a dream of becoming a biomedical engineer. He was active in Wright Engineering Council and intramural soccer. His too-short life is remembered but his friends for its vitality; he was always in search of fun and excitement. He was never known to be in a bad mood. The establishment of this scholarship in his honor and memory was made by Gregory Bartell, a close friend and Wright State student himself. It is a tribute and living memorial to Cary. Its purpose is to encourage promising young people to pursue an education within CECS and provide financial aid to make that possible.
Provide educational resources to encourage underrepresented students to pursue an engineering degree
To provide scholarship funds to students completing an internship within the College of Engineering and Computer Science.
