A bequest of $1,000 was received in 1961 from Mary H. Walker, wife of Frank B. Walker, a Past President of the BSCES. No restrictions were placed upon the use of the money. It was decided at that the income be used for the benefit of the Society and its members.
On January 30, 1979, the Board of Government voted to combine the two funds into the Howe-Walker Fund with the income from the joint fund being used to provide prizes, called the Howe-Walker Awards, to members of ASCE Student Chapters in Massachusetts. On February 23, 1987, the Board of Government voted that the Howe-Walker Awards would henceforth consist of payment for an individuals first year dues in ASCE and BSCES (or local Section where they reside). This award is presented to a senior from each of the Student Chapters at the annual Student Night.
Currently, the Younger Member Group and the Student Chapter Committee oversee the use of the fund to ensure it is utilized for its intended purpose.
