The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) is a non-profit association of professional engineers from all of the Armed Forces and from all fields of engineering practice in the private sector. Dedicated to the National Defense, SAME's mission is to bring the Nation's engineers together in peacetime to advance military engineering knowledge, promote efficiency in the military services, and develop a spirit of cooperation between the engineering profession in the private sector and that of the military so that they can be effectively engaged in emergencies. This scholarship is intended to further SAME's goal of "Building Engineers for National Defense".
The Society of American Military Engineers offers a very unique series of engineering camps designed for High School students who excel in math, science and technical courses and are interested in pursuing engineering in college or attendance at a service academy. These camps are high energy, hands–on events for students from across the country and around the world. The camps are led by a professional staff of engineers from both private industry and the military services.
