It is the intent of the Kittyhawk Post to grant 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 associate, baccalaureate, and graduate degrees. The number and value of scholarships awarded may vary from year to year, but the goal is to award at least one scholarship in each of the categories outlined below. Two types of scholarships are awarded each year. Below we provide links to detailed descriptions and applications for each.

Deadline to Receive Applications and accompanying files is April 2, 2020.

Traditional Student Scholarships are provided for either students enrolled in, or high school seniors intending to pursue, a full-time accredited baccalaureate program.

Non-traditional Student Scholarships are intended to aid students with at least one year full-time work experience who are returning to school to pursue an advanced degree or to make a career change.

Non-Traditional Student Scholarship Paper Application Form

You can submit your application in one of two ways (submitting both ways is not necessary):

  • Complete the application form in Word or pdf, and email it along with all supporting files to Nadja.turek@woolpert.com. Please include “SAME scholarship application” in the subject.
  • Send the application and all supporting files via mail to:

SAME Kittyhawk Post
Attn: Scholarship Committee
P.O. Box 328,
Fairborn, Ohio 45324

Please combine your application into one submittal, if feasible. However, if necessary, you may submit parts separately. For example, you can submit your application electronically, while someone acting as your reference can mail their reference letter to the PO Box address separately. Please clearly label all documents so we can combine split submittals. Only complete applications submitted by April 2, 2020 will be reviewed. For questions regarding scholarship eligibility or selection criteria and timeline, please contact our Education Committee chair, Ms. Nadja Turek, 937-531-1287.

Thanks and good luck!
