Senior Allison Roush was chosen as one of seven recipients of the 2021 McAllister Leadership Scholarship. Roush plans to commission as an officer in the Air Force after graduation, followed by a career in developmental engineering.

Now in its 23rd year, the William C. McAllister Leadership Scholarship benefits undergraduate engineering students at Virginia Tech with awards to support their education ranging from $1,500 to $4,000 per year. Scholarship preference is given, but not limited to, students in the Corp of Cadets and is awarded to students based on superior intellectual promise and academic performance, demonstrated leadership ability, and personal character. Recipients are required to exhibit a strong commitment to leadership.

All recipients were recognized at an October 21  ceremony with Dean Julia Ross.
