SOCORRO, N.M., Oct. 18, 2006 – Charles A. Javorsky, a retired metallurgist from Los Alamos National Laboratory, has endowed an undergraduate scholarship at New Mexico Tech for a student in the field of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering.
According to Javorsky, “I liked the fact that New Mexico Tech concentrates on science and engineering. When I was a student, I was very lucky to get help along the way. I thought this would be a good way to help students complete their education.”
Javorsky has transferred stock to New Mexico Tech, which will be used to fund scholarships for undergraduate students in the Department of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering. The scholarships will go to students who have at least a 3.0 GPA, and will be administered by the Office of Financial Aid.
According to Dr. Deidre Hirschfeld, chair of the department, “We are very grateful to Mr. Javorsky for endowing these scholarships. This scholarship will financially help and recognize outstanding Materials Engineering students.”
New Mexico Tech is a state-supported science and engineering research university located in Socorro, N.M.
