On, February 15, 2020 will be the deadline for applications for Robert Mack scholarships. Application forms can be found on the website,, and there are hot button links to this website on the CSHE home page.

The scholarship foundation started over 30 years ago by a group of former CSHE state presidents and was named after the first CSHE president. It was founded to support and encourage education for students and members pursuing education in curriculums that would help them in careers in facilities planning, management, maintenance, and operations.

Scholarships are awarded annually to deserving graduating high school seniors, undergraduate and graduate college students, as well as, trade school students pursuing certificates in various building systems topics. Please check our website for more details and instructions for applying. In 2019, six scholarships were awarded! Remember the deadline for applying - February 15, 2020!

On a separate note, over the past five years Robert Mack Scholarship Foundation (RMSF) has held an annual wood bat softball tournament in San Diego. University Mechanical’s team has won all five; however, we’ll see if they can repeat in 2020 fall. These are designed a fun day with great weather; and over $5,000 was raised for the foundation. We extend a “big thank you” to Ken Gibson, a CSHE member and former San Diego Chapter President for coordinating the event.
