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.
