Scholarship Opportunity for Engineering and Architecture
2015 Scholarship information coming soon.
The Great Basin Post is opening its annual scholarship selection process for 2014. We plan to award three scholarships ($1800 each) to high school students and three (also $1800 each) to college students pursuing accredited degrees in engineering or architecture. Applications are due January 10, 2014. We invite post members to participate in the process. Help us get the word out by alerting students you know who may qualify, or by helping us reach out to local high school advisers and counselors. Fliers to give to counselors, and applications are available on the Post website, http://posts.same.org/greatbasin/ (Be sure to select the right flier and application for either high school or university level.)

The 2014 Fliers
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. These one–week 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. This year, camps are being sponsored by the Army (Vicksburg, VA, June 22-28), the Air Force Academy (Colorado Springs, CO, June 26- July 2), and the Marine Corps (Camp Lejeune, NC, June 22-28).
Applications must be submitted to the Great Basin Post no later than 14 March, to allow post evaluation and nomination by the camp deadline. See http://samecamps.org/ for qualifications and application process. There is a lot of competition for camp spots but for selected students the post will sponsor half of the registration fee and the airfare. If you have questions, please call Evan Gabrielsen at 801-904-4070, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
