Two UW students, Austen H. Motily and Vivaswat Shastry, were among 271 awardees for TBP scholarships.

Two high-achieving University of Wyoming students received a notable scholarship from a national engineering organization.
 
The College of Engineering and Applied Science’s Austen H. Motily of Cheyenne and Vivaswat Shastry of Bangalore, India, each were given Tau Beta Pi scholar status, announced this week by the organization. Tau Beta Pi, the national engineering honor society, awarded $520,000 to 271 scholars. Nationwide, 679 students applied for the awards. Most recipients receive a cash award of $2,000 for their senior year of engineering study, and a few will receive $1,000 for one semester.
 
All TBP scholarships are awarded on the competitive criteria of high scholarship, campus leadership and service, and promise of future contributions to the engineering profession. All scholars are members of TBP.
 
Motily (mechanical engineering) and Shastry (electrical engineering) each received the Record Scholarship. The Record Scholarships, awarded for the first time in 2001, commemorate Leroy E. Record, whose generous bequest will provide earnings to support awards in perpetuity.
