SAE student members will be nominated by their SAE faculty advisor who will provide a citation detailing the student's outstanding leadership skills during the past academic year. All nominees will meet the following criteria:
Nominations will be judged based on SAE-related leadership activities during the year of nomination, and imminent support of SAE and its activities.
This award recognizes an outstanding student leader of one or more SAE activities and encourages a vision within the student to become an SAE leader during his/her adult career. Through a generous contribution from Max E. Rumbaugh Jr., past Executive Vice President of SAE (1986-2001), this award exemplifies his interest in encouraging leadership qualities and opportunities within the ranks of SAE supporters.
This award, established in 2002, is administered by the Rumbaugh Award Selection Committee and consists of a framed medal, a $750 honorarium, a lifetime professional membership in SAE and a trip to a major SAE meeting where the award is presented.
