Scholarship and Education Outreach


The purpose of the SAME Baltimore Post Scholarship and Educational Outreach Fund is to encourage and support talented students to pursue careers in engineering, architecture, or the physical sciences. We accomplish this through scholarships awarded to qualified students who are pursuing a baccalaureate degree in these fields. Our scholarship recipients are selected on a merit-based approach.  With generous donations from our Sustaining Member Firms and Individual Members we were able to award ten scholarships to Baltimore area students in 2015.  We were also able to fund activities for middle school students at Easy as Pi and conduct student mentoring at local colleges.  We cannot do this without your help.  Please consider donating to our program, as described in the attached letter to members.  Our future engineers need your help!  Thank you for your support.


Letter to Members


We have set up an e-mail address strictly for our Post Treasurer/Assistant Treasurer:  BaltimoreSAMETreasurer@gmail.com.  Any questions for the treasurer will be promptly addressed.  Thank you.




Our Programs Committee has been busy developing an information-packed slate of programs for the 2016-2017 year, starting with a conference call in July. If you are interested in helping, please send a note to Heather Polinsky: heather.polinsky@arcadis-us.com or to Trey Jordan: jordanjr@gmail.com.


The SAME Baltimore Post is interested in hearing from you, our members. Please take a few moments to answer the following anonymous survey. Your input will influence Post communication activities, monthly meeting topics, and general Post operations.

We’re Looking for a Few Good Fellows

The SAME Academy of Fellows is a body of SAME members who have rendered dedicated and outstanding service to SAME, to military engineering, to engineering and related professions in general, and to their community.  Being accepted into the College of Fellows is a great distinction.  Somewhat less than 3% of the total SAME membership has been awarded this honor.  However, for members who have shown outstanding achievement and leadership (which includes leadership by example), being accepted into the Academy of Fellows is not an unachievable goal, and the Society is sincere in its desire to ensure that deserving members are granted this recognition.  The selection process is not a competition.
