The purpose of the SAME Baltimore Post Scholarship and Educational Outreach Fund is to provide financial assistance to: (1) deserving college students to enable them to pursue their chosen course of study in engineering, architecture, or related disciplines; (2) honorably discharged veterans who have served our Nation for professional study directly related to engineering, architecture, or related disciplines, and (3) committee sponsored programs that promote the growth and learning of junior high and high school students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). We accomplish this through scholarships awarded to qualified students and veterans who are pursuing a baccalaureate degree in these fields. Our scholarship recipients are selected on a merit-based approach.
Our program awards scholarships in three categories - One-Year Scholarships, Four-Year Scholarships and Relative Scholarships. All scholarship awards are in the amount of $2,000 per academic year and are awarded during the first semester.
Those students and veterans who are interested can obtain an application form from www.samebalt.org. Applicants are to select all categories they would like to be considered for, provided they meet the requirements. General requirements for all SAME scholarships are specified on the “Scholarship Selection Criteria” sheet of the application. Additional requirements for each of the three scholarship categories are provided below.
Four-year scholarships are awarded to incoming freshmen. Candidates for four-year scholarships may be nominated by the school or the candidate may self-nominate. Applicants must meet the “Scholarship Selection Criteria” requirements and must be attending a school that is in the SAME Baltimore Post geographic region. A list of eligible schools for the current academic year is provided below. Candidates must meet two requirements to be considered for scholarship renewal after the first year award:
