Engineering students are the beneficiaries of an $80,000 grant from the Sutaruk Foundation.

The scholarship has been an important financial resource for Detroit Mercy Engineering students for more than a decade. Since the 2005 when it was established, 115 students have received the Alex Sutaruk Scholarship. Of those, 54 received the scholarship more than once.

This academic year, 14 students are Alex Sutaruk Scholars.

The Sutaruk Foundation, established in 2003, honors the memory of Mechanical Engineering alumnus Alex Sutaruk and his parents, John and Catherine Sutar, and their commitment to self-reliance, independence, hope for the future and education.
