The Scott-St. Louis Chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) is pleased to announce its annual call for scholarship and grant applicants. We’re an active sponsor of higher education in hard sciences, mathematics, information technology, and engineering. As part of the national AFCEA organization we support a comprehensive program of scholarships promoting all-around academic excellence.
Last year, the chapter awarded over $40,000 in scholarships and grants to local area college and college-bound students. The Scott-St. Louis Chapter scholarship program fosters interest in technology fields. It presents an ideal opportunity for member companies to take an active role in addressing the well-documented challenges associated with the shortage of skilled technology workers. Applicants must be (or plan to be) enrolled in programs or pursuing classes related to electronics, electronic communications, electrical engineering, information systems, computer science or technology, physics, or mathematics.
Applications will be accepted for consideration until 8 April 2013 All correspondence must be postmarked by this date. Scholarships will be awarded at the Scott-St. Louis Chapter's annual Awards Banquet (date TBD). The scholarship program has a number of eligibility requirements and selection criteria that need to be considered when applying.
To be considered, the following must be provided: Completed application mailed to the AFCEA P.O. Box by required date (postage is applicant’s responsibility – recommend weighing your package for proper postage). Also include a copy of transcript(s) certified by education institution sealed by their stamp and also indicate - if selected for a scholarship if the student wants to be publically identified in local newspapers or other awards ceremony publications. This will have no effect on the evaluation of the qualifications or criteria for grant or scholarship selection.
