2015 SAWE Scholarship Program Applications

February 1, 2015



Each year the Society of Allied Weight Engineers, Inc. sponsors the SAWE Scholarship Program.

Applicants must be children* or grandchildren (age 25 and under) of members of the SAWE worldwide who have a minimum of one year of membership as of the application deadline date. Children of deceased members are also eligible.

*For purposes of this program, children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren of members.

Applicants must be high school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited four- year college or university.

The program will utilize standard Scholarship Management Services recipient selection procedures including the consideration of past academic performance and future potential, leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, statement of career and educational aspirations and goals, unusual personal or family circumstances and an outside appraisal. In no instance does any member of the SAWE or the Frank Fong family play a part in the selection of the winners.

The distribution of new awards for 2015 is $3,000. Up to three (3) awards of $1,000 each will be granted. One (1) award will be given to a technical student (e.g. engineering, physics, mathematics, computer sciences, etc.) from the SAWE/Frank Fong Memorial Scholarship Fund. There is no course of study requirement for the two (2) awards from the Scholarship Fund for Children and Grandchildren.

Awards are for undergraduate study only. Financial need will not be considered.

Awards are not renewable; however, students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Applications will be accepted starting February 1, 2015, and must be postmarked no later than April 1, 2015.
