2021 Phoenix Post Scholarship Information
The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME), Phoenix Post intends to award ONE scholarship valued at $1,500 to a student pursuing a college degree in one of the science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) fields prior to the end of calendar year 2021.
Applicants must be enrolled, or planning to enroll, in a full-time undergraduate degree program in one of the STEM disciplines at an accredited college or university in the spring or fall terms of 2020. Applicants who have earned an undergraduate degree or who are enrolled in a graduate degree program are not eligible. All applicants must also have a minimum GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 basis) to be eligible to apply. The minimum GPA requirement applies to both high school and college students. No scholarship will be awarded for those pursuing an associate, second undergraduate or graduate school degree. Applicants who receive an appointment to one of the U.S. Military Academies (or affiliated preparatory schools) or are awarded a full scholarship at any accredited U.S. post-secondary institution of higher education are not eligible to receive funds from this program. A full scholarship is usually defined as one that provides for payment of tuition, books, lab fees, and other related expenses. An ROTC scholarship is considered a full scholarship.
Preference will also be given for candidates who are interested in pursuing a military career or has at least one family member (sibling, parent, or grandparent) who is either:
(1) An active SAME member
(2) A current member of the U.S. military, or
(3) Retired from the U.S. military.
Applicants must be high school seniors currently enrolled in the 2021 school year or are expecting to enroll in college for the 2022 school year or returning college sophomores, juniors, or seniors enrolled in a college or university for the next academic year.
Further, our intent is to target this scholarship award to a Phoenix Post area high school or college student (primary address in greater Phoenix area, the college does not need to be in AZ). The Post reserves the right to offer scholarships to any qualified candidate.
Submission Deadline is November 30, 2021.
Scholarship award recipient would be notified by December 11th, 2021, and a formal announcement would be made at the SAME Phoenix Post Holiday Luncheon, currently planned for December 12th, 2021.
