Randy Rawson Scholarship Program

Purpose & Scope
The Randy Rawson Scholarship Program was created for the Promotion of Careers in Boiler Engineering and Fabrication. A special fund has been set aside to the support scholarship program and is operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. The specific purpose of the Fund is to support post-secondary education and/or training of graduating high school students pursuing careers in the commercial, institutional, industrial or power-generating boiler, combustion and related equipment industry through educational scholarships. The number and amount of scholarships awarded is determined by the ABMA Board of Directors each year in which scholarships are offered. In 2020, the ABMA awarded twelve (12) scholarships and has given out over $200,000 since inception.
