Maxime (BSE ME ’78, MSE ’80) and Maureen Albi have documented a bequest to establish the Maxime and Maureen Albi Endowed Fund to assist students enrolled in the College of Engineering’s Department of Mechanical Engineering. More specifically, this gift will provide undergraduate scholarships or graduate fellowships with the potential of supporting both. Awards will be based on financial need and academic merit.

As an international scholarship recipient himself, Mr. Albi treasures the education he received from the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He is excited to support students who are willing to work hard and take advantage of what Michigan Engineering has to offer. Mr. Albi hopes that the recipients of his fund will one day pay it forward and provide financial assistance to future students.

With 25+ years’ experience in engineering, sales, and business development, Mr. Albi currently leads business development and strategic alliances at a high tech firm based in Silicon Valley.
