70 for 70 Giving Challenge

In honor of the College of Engineering’s 70th anniversary, alumni Jackie (BSEE ’85) and Hector Maestri (BSEE ’84), Basil Khalil (BSIE ’94, MSIE ’97), Eric Cheng (BSBE ’95, MSIE ’01) and Amy Powers (BBA ’93, MBA ’97, MSTX ’00) have each made a financial commitment to engineering student scholarships. Together, their commitments total $35,000.

We’re now looking to our alumni, faculty and friends to join them in our 70 for 70 Giving Challenge. All contributions to the College of Engineering Scholarship Fund will be applied to the challenge, from June 1, 2017, to May 31, 2018.

More than 1,100 students call the College of Engineering home, immersing themselves in its attentive undergraduate teaching and opportunities to participate in world-class research. Admission is selective and offered to those applicants whose credentials are academically sound and whose interests, aptitudes and preparation reflect a well-rounded secondary school experience, both inside and outside the classroom. Enrolling the very best applicants is also intensely competitive, and often a student’s decision about which university to attend is determined by the financial aid package.


To make a gift by check, please make it payable to the “University of Miami” and indicate The College of Engineering Scholarship Fund on the memo line.
