Nicholas Rogalewski ’20 is the first recipient of the Con Edison Endowed Scholarship, which was initially announced at the 2019 De La Salle Medal Dinner by John McAvoy ’80, chairman and CEO of Con Edison.
Rogalewski is majoring in electrical engineering with a minor in mathematics at Manhattan College. A native of the Bronx, Rogalewski has earned a spot on the dean’s list five times and is a member of the Epsilon Sigma Pi honor society.
During the summer of 2019, Rogalewski interned at the Hudson Yards project on the West Side of Manhattan and worked at Bed Bath & Beyond during his first three years of college.
“Con Edison has been a strong supporter of Manhattan College for decades,” said Tim Ward, dean of Manhattan College’s School of Engineering. “The School of Engineering is proud to say that many Manhattan College graduates have enjoyed success with the company, including John McAvoy. With the endowed scholarship, Con Edison has once again shown its commitment to Manhattan College via an outstanding award to a qualified student in Nicholas Rogalewski. On behalf of the students in the School, I thank Con Edison for its exemplary generosity.”
The $5,000 scholarship has been established through Con Edison to provide support, based on financial need, for undergraduate students who major in a field of science, technology, engineering or mathematics.
The Con Edison Scholars Network is designed to continue supporting the development of a diverse technical career pipeline. All of Con Edison’s scholarship recipients are invited to a welcome reception and will be invited to professional development workshops with Con Edison employee mentors to talk about topics such as fostering workplace relationships, networking and building a strong LinkedIn presence.
