It prepares you for such an incredible variety of high-impact fields that it’s no mistake that notable chemical engineering majors include:

  • Linus Pauling, winner of both the Nobel Peace Prize and the Nobel Prize in Chemistry (and the only person to ever win two unshared Nobel Prizes)
  • Liza Jackson, Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency
  • Jack Welch, Chairman and CEO of General Electric
  • Margaret Hutchinson Rousseau, designer of the first commercial penicillin plant
  • Nitin Nohria, dean of Harvard Business School
  • John von Neumann, one of the greatest mathematicians in history and winner of the Presidential Medal of Freedom
  • Dolph Lundgren, best known for playing Ivan Drago in the Rocky film series
  • Ashton Kutcher, Actor and Investor
  • Andy Grove, CEO of Intel and author of High Output Management
  • Mae Jemison, NASA Astronaut and the first African-American woman in space
  • Roberto Goizueta, CEO and Chairman of Coca Cola

From entrepreneurship to technology to medicine and more, the intense rigor of a chemical engineering degree prepares you to excel in whichever field you choose to pursue.

The Breanden Beneschott Grant for Chemical Engineers is designed to support those future high achievers.

An ideal applicant is an aspiring, current, or graduated chemical engineering major who embraces this challenging field as a way to prepare for bold and ambitious things in life, whether they plan to go into engineering, medicine, entrepreneurship, or something else.
