Post Scholarship Fund
The Baltimore SAME Post, Education and Mentoring Committee awarded a total of 10 scholarships (Six new one year awards, one new 4-year award and three continuing awards to existing 4-year awardees). Awardees included students from Institutions within the footprint of the Post (UMD, UMBC, Morgan State University, Johns Hopkins University (JHU) and University of Delaware). Ms Jane Sussman, a final year student at JHU, was the awardee for the EA Engineering endowment to JHU. Consistent with our Mission, the students majors included Computer Science, Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Bio Engineering. We have received “thank you” messages and emails from the awardees including letters of appreciation from the institutions (see below). The new scholarship awardees are expected to attend one of our Post Meetings during the 2014-2015 Session. The Education and Mentoring Committee look forward to serve as their host at upcoming meetings.
