All graduating seniors who plan to attend a post-secondary educational institution are eligible to enter the AES Engineering Scholarship Essay Contest
. The winners of this annual essay contest will each receive a $500 scholarship
. Because AES Engineering believes that achieving a high grade point average should not be the only criteria for determining who deserves to be helped, they are offering a scholarship that will be awarded on the basis of character, as determined by an evaluation of the essays that are submitted. As these scholarships are intended for future leaders across a wide spectrum of fields of study, students do not need to study Engineering in order to be eligible. To apply, students must submit an essay of between 500 and 1000 words
in answer to the following question: When you look back on your life in 30 years, what would it take for you to consider your life successful? What relationships or accomplishments will be important on this journey?
Essays should be emailed to [email protected]
. There is no application packet for this award, so please do not include a resume at this time. However, be sure to include your full name as well as the name of the school you are attending this year and your plans for next year. To learn more about this scholarship, click here
