“To lead collaborative efforts to identify and resolve national security infrastructure-related challenges.”
The Society of American Military Engineers offers a very unique series of engineering camps designed for High School students who excel in math, science and technical courses and are interested in pursuing engineering in college. These one–week camps are high energy, hands–on events for students from across the country and around the world. The camps are led by a professional staff of engineers from both private industry and the military services. These exciting week–long camps take place during the summer months in a variety of settings—centered on a military base in the colorful Colorado Rockies, the beautiful Southern California Coast, the historic Mississippi Valley.
2023 Pikes Peak Post Scholarship Information
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 STEM 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.
The deadline for application is March 31, 2023. Download information and application HERE.
In an effort to support SAME Young Members and NCOs obtain credentials that strengthen their professionalism, SAME has developed the CAAP. The program is intended to help fund exam sitting or registration fees for credentials, certifications or licensures deemed to have intrinsic value to SAME’s mission and the architectural and engineering professions. These include:
Others may be considered on a case by case review by the Committee and with the approval of the SAME Director of Programs. CAAP applications will be evaluated by a review committee for approval.

Pikes Peak Post Boy Scout Engineering Merit Badge
The Engineering Merit Badge day gives Boy Scouts an opportunity to complete all the requirements necessary to earn the Boy Scout Engineering Merit Badge in one day in the United States Air Force Academy. This event is held each Fall for all boy scouts interested in earning the badge. This event is structured to meet all of Boy Scouts of Americas requirements and is run by Boy Scout leaders to ensure we are meeting the standards for Boy Scouts.

PIKES PEAK POST YOUNG WOMEN'S STEM DAYS
The Young Women’s STEM day is a mirror event to the Boy Scout day except it is for young ladies. This day at the United States Air Force Academy introduces the participants to careers in engineering. The event further introduces careers in multiple STEM fields beyond engineering. The young ladies participate in multiple hands on stations where they work with lasers, rockets, telescopes, building materials and much more to give them the tools to help them make more informed career decision about opportunities in engineering and STEM fields. For information, Todd Cartwright, STEM Chair, firstname.lastname@example.org
SAME reaches out to connect with many schools in the CO area to provide STEM personnel for classroom engagement, judging for science fairs and STEM competitions and support. Our objective is form long term relationships with school and teacher.
The Technology Student Association fosters personal growth, leadership, and opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM); members apply and integrate these concepts through co-curricular activities, competitions, and related programs. SAME members provide support by judging and hosting competitions.
