Sept. 6, 2012: New Scholarship Honors ASHRAE’s First Female President

September 6, 2012
ATLANTA — The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has announced a new scholarship created in memory of Presidential Member Lynn G. Bellenger, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, which will be available for the 2013-14 school year.

The one-year $5,000 Lynn G. Bellenger Scholarship will be awarded to a deserving female undergraduate engineering student pursuing a degree in a field related to HVACR.

“Lynn was a role model for us all, and her dedication to energy modeling helped to promote a more sustainable world,” said Tom Watson, ASHRAE president. “Through this scholarship we hope to build upon her legacy by encouraging students to pursue excellence in the field of engineering, just as she did.”

Bellenger served as ASHRAE’s president during 2010-11 and was the organization’s first woman president in its 116 year history. She was a recognized expert in energy management, with a strong focus on the need for energy modeling to help create and refine more efficient buildings.

During her time as president, Bellenger promoted sustainable design, which according to her, “ignited a passion in people that is changing the world.” The first ASHRAE Energy Modeling Conference was also held during her presidency.

Bellenger passed away in 2011. To honor her legacy, ASHRAE established the Lynn G. Bellenger Scholarship, which is being used to recognize women in engineering. Contributions to help fund the scholarship are being accepted at www.ashrae.org/bellenger.
