McGuire Master of Engineering Fellowship Fund

This fellowship was started when Professor William “Bill” McGuire retired from a 40 year distinguished teaching career in civil engineering. He was a teacher, advisor, counselor and friend to all associated with the School. Bill’s students, felt a strong urge to do something for a man who has done so much for his students, for the reputation of the School, the University, and the civil engineering profession. 

Bill was honored to have his name associated with a fellowship to aid students in the School’s Master of Engineering Program. This fellowship provides financial support to assist incoming students enrolled in the School’s Masters of Engineering Program. This is a professional degree program that Bill felt very strongly about and that is highly regarded both within and outside the Cornell community. Bill had a desire to help students pursue their educational goals and this fellowship continues to fulfill that need in his honor.
