Maxine Shelly Turner Memorial Scholarship is awarded to an undergraduate student who is majoring in Chemical Engineering and is also in the University Honors Program with demonstrated academic achievement. As a merit-based scholarship, preference shall not be given based on financial need.

Maxine Shelly Turner, or “ Max” to her friends and family, was an Honors student from Vienna, Va., set to graduate with a degree in chemical engineering in spring 2007. She was brilliant, beautiful, and extraordinarily talented. During her time here at Virginia Tech, she helped found a chapter of Alpha Omega Epsilon. As one of 12 founding members, Max believed in the importance of having a professional sorority for female engineers at a school known for its excellent engineering programs. She was very active within the sorority, holding such offices as community outreach chair and professional life chair. She was in the Hypatia class that encouraged the university to expand Hypatia, the Women in Engineering Learning Community, which brings together female first-year engineering students in a residential environment, from a one-year to a two-year program. She contributed to the Virginia Tech and Blacksburg community by volunteering for the Relay for Life, the Big Event, and at the animal shelter.
