The 2020 SAME Pikes Peak Post Scholarship Application is now available. 

The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME), Pikes Peak Post intends to award multiple scholarships to Engineering Students this school year. Applicants must be enrolled, or planning to enroll, in a full-time undergraduate Engineering degree program at an accredited college or university in the fall term. 

Applicants who have earned an undergraduate degree or who are enrolled in a graduate degree program are not eligible. All applicants must also have a minimum GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 basis) to be eligible to apply. The minimum GPA requirement applies to both high school and college students. No scholarship will be awarded for those pursuing an associate, second undergraduate or graduate school degree. Applicants who receive an appointment to one of the U.S. Military Academies (or affiliated preparatory schools) or are awarded a full scholarship at any accredited U.S. post-secondary institution of higher education are not eligible to receive funds from this program. A full scholarship is usually defined as one that provides for payment of tuition, books, lab fees, and other related expenses. An ROTC scholarship is considered a full scholarship.

Applicants must be pursuing a four-year degree in Engineering from an accredited college or university and either is interested in pursuing a military career or has at least
one family member (sibling, parent, or grandparent) who is either: 

(1) An active SAME member

(2) A current member of the U.S. military, or
(3) Veteran from the U.S. military.

Applicants must be high school seniors expecting to enroll in college for the 2020-2021 school year or returning college sophomores, juniors, or seniors enrolled in a college or
university for the next academic year. Our intent is to target scholarship awards to Pikes Peak Post area high school students and college students. The Post reserves the right to offer scholarships to any qualified candidates.

A copy of the scholarship application is available for download here. If you have any questions about the scholarship program, please contact the Pikes Peak Post STEM Chair at

The deadline for application is March 01, 2020.
