2015 AMG Structural Engineering Scholarship
The AMG Structural Engineering Scholarship is designed to identify and influence the structural engineers of tomorrow who will design and build our future.
An annual $1,500 tuition scholarship is awarded each year to a full-time college student who is working toward a degree in an engineering field. We welcome applications from students pursuing degrees in Structural Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, and related engineering majors.
To be applicable for the AMG Structural Engineering Scholarship, students must:
- Be enrolled as a "full-time" student
- Prove a GPA of 3.0 or higher
- Major in a field related to structural engineering
- Be involved in at least one extracurricular activity - including service groups, professional/engineering clubs, social societies, volunteer programs, or other noteworthy extracurricular involvement.
As a part of the engineering scholarship application process, applicants will be asked to submit a brief essay (maximum of 500 words) to provide background on their engineering interests. Essays will be centered around the question "Why Engineering" and will ask students to describe why they have chosen a career in engineering as well as to describe what they hope to accomplish during their engineering careers.
Applications are now being accepted. Students may submit their scholarship applications until October 1st, 2015. The scholarship winner will be announced and notified on October 15th, 2015.
About the Structural Engineering Field
Our hope through the AMG Structural Engineering Annual Scholarship Program is to support tomorrow's outstanding structural engineers, as well as to recognize the schools and teachers who inspire and prepare engineering students.
Structural engineering is a vast field comprised of the analysis and design of deep and shallow foundation systems. The field commonly works to design and build structures and systems using steel, concrete, timber, and masonry materials. Engineers are responsible for bringing complex ideas and designs to life everyday.
