The Anderson Scholarship was established in 2004 by the generous donation of the late Professor Thomas P. Anderson's family for Mechanical Engineering at SIUE. The scholarship is to honor an outstanding junior or senior Mechanical Engineering student. The scholarship is under the supervision of SIUE Mechanical Engineering faculty. Currently the scholarship pays tuition of one semester. If the tuition is already paid by other scholarships, the Anderson Scholarship will pay $1,500 cash.
