fPlease see the attached scholarship application to high school seniors interested in pursuing a degree in engineering. Through our Alaska Engineering Education Foundation (AEEF) and Anchorage Engineers Week we fund several scholarships. There are two AEEF scholarships awarded state-wide--one for $2000 through AEEF, awarded as $1000 over a two-year period and a second, from ASPE is $1500. There are also several awards offered at the local level through our annual Engineers Week celebration. The number and amounts of those scholarships vary depending on the amount of money raised during our fundraising efforts. Last year, there were over $30,000 dollars in scholarships were awarded and some single scholarships were over $4,000! This one application will place a student in consideration for MULTIPLE scholarships.
To help encourage more participation from the rural school districts, we have created two pools for evaluation. Students in the Anchorage, Mat-Su, and Kenai Peninsula school districts will be evaluated separately from other students in southcentral Alaska. This means that small school students will be competing against other small school students. So please encourage your students to apply!

The General Scholarship is merit based; scores will be equally weighted among four categories: education, community involvement, future education/career goals, and financial need.
