Society of American Military Engineers Scholarship Opportunities
FAIRBORN, Ohio – January 14, 2020 – Applications are now available for a number of scholarships supported by the Society of American Military Engineers Kittyhawk Post.
The Kittyhawk Post grants scholarships annually to encourage students in the Post’s region (Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky) to pursue careers in fields related to the Society’s mission - engineering, architecture, construction, facilities management and environmental management/science. The program is designed to cover all levels of post-high-school education to include baccalaureate, and graduate degrees. The number and value of scholarships awarded may vary from year to year, thanks in part to donations from many of the Posts Sustaining (private industry) members. Grants are unrestricted, and they are usually offered at $1000 to $1500.
Scholarships are open to all qualifying local students whose applications are received by the April 2, 2020 deadline. The Post’s Major General Barnes, April Lewis, and sustaining member scholarships are intended to assist current college students and 2020/21 entering freshmen in fields related to the Society’s mission including engineering, architecture, construction, facilities management, and environmental management/science. The Post’s Timothy Curtis scholarship is designed to aid students with at least one year of full-time work experience who are returning to school to pursue an advanced engineering degree or architecture degree, or to make a career change into these fields.
Detailed descriptions for these scholarships, as well as application forms and procedures, can be found on the Post’s website and questions can be directed to the Education Committee chair, Ms. Nadja Turek, (937) 531-1287
