Those grants were awarded to student chapters at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo; Colorado State University; Iowa State University; Oregon State University; University of Cincinnati; University of Louisiana-Monroe; University of Wisconsin-Platteville at Fox Valley; and Western Carolina University.

Chapter of Excellence Grants were awarded to seven established chapters to help them pay for a special project, membership recruitment, travel costs to the Student Chapter Summit or the MCAA convention, or other chapter needs. Chapters that will receive the grants are at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Illinois State University, Purdue University, Southern Polytechnic State University, Texas A&M University, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and University of Washington.
