The attached scholarship application is for 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 statewide--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, over $20,000 in scholarships were awarded and some single scholarships were over $4,000! This one application will place a student in consideration for MULTIPLE scholarships.
