The Robert Mack Scholarship Foundation

The Robert Mack Scholarship Foundation was established in 1986 by the Board of the California Society for Healthcare Engineering (CSHE). The Scholarship Foundation was created to further CSHE's goal of "Better patient care through progressive engineering knowledge."

Foundation Trustees are all CSHE past state presidents or state executive committee members and serve without compensation. We currently make awards based on scholastic achievement to individuals intending to work in an occupation that is directly involved with healthcare engineering.

Examples of these fields of study are facility engineering, bio-medical engineering, architecture, mechanical or electrical engineering and construction management in the healthcare field.
