Fred M. Young Sr./SAE Engineering Scholarship

The Young Radiator Co. established this scholarship in memory of the company's founder, Fred M. Young Sr. Young started the company in 1927 and saw it grow to become a major force in the field of heat transfer. He had a high regard for the value of engineering in terms of its contribution to the success of society.

Young felt that the profession's nobility lay in its focus on building rather than allocating the assets of the world and improving rather than administering the product of our work. Young was a life member of SAE and was elected to the Fellow grade of membership in 1982.
