Do you have a dependent or know of someone who is or will be pursuing a degree in Engineering, Science, Technology, or a related field and needs a scholarship?

If so, as a member of the Seattle Post, you can sponsor a student’s application for up to a $2,500 scholarship.  Completed scholarship applications will be accepted during the scholarship application acceptance period (February 02, 2018 through April 06, 2018).

This year the Puget Sound Engineering and Science Scholarship Fund (PSE&SSF) will award scholarships totaling $27,000 on behalf of the SAME Seattle Post.

  • Six scholarships will be awarded to Post Member-sponsored applicants (3 Post Member-sponsored scholarships valued at $2,500 each and 3 Post Member-sponsored scholarships valued at $2,000 each).
  • Another thirteen scholarships will be awarded to graduating High School Seniors (1 High School scholarship valued at $1,500 and 12 High School scholarships valued at $1,000 each).

High School students who apply for Post Member-sponsored scholarships are automatically included in the High School scholarship pool if they are not selected for a Post Member-sponsored scholarship.  The final number and amount of scholarships may be adjusted based on the number and quality of the applications as well as additional funds that may become available.

The Seattle Post Member-sponsored scholarships are open to all student applicants who meet the following criteria:

  • Must be a US citizen.
  • Must be a dependent of or sponsored by a current member of the Seattle Post.  Each Seattle Post Member may sponsor multiple dependents OR one applicant who is not a dependent.
  • Applicant may be either currently enrolled as a full-time college student OR be a graduating High School Senior.  The applicant must be enrolled in or be accepted into a full-time program of study towards a Bachelor of Science (BS) Degree in the fields of engineering, science, technology, or a related field at an accredited college or university.
  • If a graduating High School Senior, the applicant must have graduated from or be scheduled to graduate from an accredited high school, public or private, in the spring of 2018.

Furthermore, there are two additional 2018 scholarship programs offered by PSE&SSF that are open to dependents and friends of Seattle Post Members, they are:

  • PSE&SSF College Scholarships (for High School Seniors graduating in spring of 2018).  The applicant must be a US citizen accepted into a full-time program of study towards a Bachelor of Science (BS) Degree in engineering, science, technology, or a related field at an accredited college or university.  Currently, seven $1,000 PSE&SSF College Scholarships will be awarded to graduating High School Seniors that will be attending an accredited college or university in the fall of 2018.
  • Shannon & Wilson Civil Engineering Scholarship (for current full-time undergraduate University of Washington students).  The applicant must be a full-time University of Washington student who is either accepted or currently enrolled in the Civil Engineering undergraduate program (i.e., seeking a Bachelor of Science [BS] Degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Washington).  Currently, one $1,000 scholarship award is available for 2018 and will be awarded to a University of Washington student who continues the pursuit of their Civil Engineering undergraduate degree into the fall of 2018.
