My name is Joann Mitchell and I am the Alaska Society of Professional Engineers (ASPE) Anchorage Chapter Scholarship Chair. I am writing to ask for help in distributing the attached scholarship application to high school seniors interested in pursuing a degree in engineering. Through our Alaska Engineering Education Foundation (AEEF) we fund a number of 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 $10,000 dollars distributed. This one application will place a student in consideration for ALL scholarships.
I am available for any questions or assistance with the application. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questionsI can be of any help. The application will soon be posted on our foundation webpage http://www.alaskaspe.org/scholarship.html. I appreciate your help in getting our application out to all seniors considering engineering in school who might benefit from additional funding assistance.
