ASCE Awards Byron Jones Scholarship

The Oregon Section of ASCE Awarded the Byron Jones Scholarship to four distinguish student leaders.

Byron Jones was a Senior Field Engineer with the Portland Cement Association.

He was President of the Oregon Section in 1969, Outstanding Civil Engineer in 1982, and an active member of the Student Affairs committee at the time of his passing in 1984. Engineering education and young people were two of Mr. Jones’s many causes. For this reason, his family requested the formation of the Byron Jones Scholarship Fund. 

The scholarship award is presented to civil engineering students who are leaders in their ASCE Student Chapter for their service to ASCE and the civil engineering community. Each winner was presented with the $1,500 scholarship at the Meet a Civil Engineer Event held at University of Portland on November 28th, 2018.
