University of Houston chemical engineering student Rosalia Wisinger has been named a National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME) scholar, an honor that reflects her hard work and involvement in the UH Cullen College of Engineering.

“I’m very honored to be a NACME scholar,” Wisinger says. “This is a goal I set and I didn’t even think I would get this far. I’m amazed that I’m here.”

Although classified as a junior, Wisinger still has to complete three more years in the chemical engineering program. When she returned to school after a 12-year absence, she joined the Program for Mastery in Engineering Studies (PROMES) and applied to the NACME program.

Wisinger says being named a NACME scholar was exactly what she needed at the right time.

“It’s definitely an opportunity and a blessing,” she said. “Now I have somewhere to work for the next two summers.”

The selected scholars must accept summer internships with corporate partners of NACME. Wisinger will perform her first internship next summer and would like to explore several of the donor companies as options.

NACME scholars must also maintain a GPA above 2.5 and attend two training workshops per year. In return, the scholars receive the opportunity to gain work experience as well as a renewable scholarship of up to $15,000 over three years.
