​Einah Reza Manalo Pelaez Memorial Scholarship

Remembering Einah

Einah Pelaez, our SWE New York President from 2016 to 2018, was a great leader. She was dedicated to making our section successful and meaningful in many dimensions: professional development, networking, and outreach. Einah was a dynamic leader who brought amazing energy and capability to every event and project. She was a warm and loving person who made people feel welcome and comfortable wherever she went. We were fortunate to have Einah share her life with us for over ten years. Einah passed from this life way too soon, robbing her friends, family and the world of a bright light. She is dearly missed.

To commemorate Einah’s life and contributions to SWE New York, after her passing we officially renamed our scholarship fund to The Einah Reza Manalo Pelaez Memorial Scholarship Fund. In that year alone, we were able to award $16,000 to deserving students in Einah’s honor.

We would like to continue to expand our scholarship fund to offer a pathway to engineering success to more deserving students.  All donations are welcome.
