Scholarships and Camps
Dear High School Counselor:
The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) offers engineering and construction summer camps for high school students that are interested in pursuing a degree in engineering or associated fields. These camps are hosted by the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA) Camp at Colorado Springs, CO, U.S. Air Force Camp at Scott Air Force Base IL, the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) Camp at Camp Lejeune, NC, the U.S. Army Camp at Vicksburg, MS, and the US Navy Camp at Port Hueneme, CA.
The Arkansas Post of SAME is pleased to announce the availability of sponsorships for these camps. One student may be competitively selected for each camp. The Arkansas Post will pay all of the camp fees and all of the students’ airfare and other transportation costs. Information, eligibility, and the application process for these camps can be found on the SAME website. The application process is online and all students will be applying through this portal. They will first create a Camper Account and then they will register for the particular camp that they are interested in attending. As part of the process, they will pick the Post that they wish to sponsor them (designate the Arkansas Post). In addition to the SAME eligibility requirements, the Arkansas Post requires any student to be at least 15 years old prior to the first day of travel. The camps have different application deadlines, so pay close attention to those dates and make sure your application is submitted before the deadline.
Please address questions regarding camps to Al Rein at 501-340-1065 (Albert.G.Rein@usace.army.mil). Thanks for your help in advertising these unique opportunities which will help prepare these future engineers and architects to make a difference in our communities.
