$2,500 annually, non-renewable. The scholarship will be paid directly to the university or college financial aid office rather than to the student. The scholarship is contingent upon enrollment in an engineering program and being accepted by the college or university of the recipient's choice.
Six awards offered annually.
The Florida Engineering Society will grant scholarships to graduating high school seniors who have a genuine interest in engineering and might need financial assistance. The initial judging will be made by the local FES Chapter Scholarship Committee on the basis of each candidate's high school record. Those selected will compete on the state level. The courses the student has taken and the credits earned for the 10th through first semester of 12th grades will be used to help evaluate the application. All courses except physical education and drivers' education will be considered. The student will be awarded supplemental credit for math, computer, natural science and mechanical drawing courses, as well as Honors, Advanced Placement, IB, and college-level courses. For purposes of this scholarship, college-level courses are defined as those offered by a university, college or junior college for which special high school or college credit is earned by the applicant. The announcement of all scholarship recipients will be made by May.
