Are you studying in a STEM field? If so, the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) may have a scholarship for you through the AFCEA STEM Majors Scholarship program. The AFCEA awards scholarships to graduate and certification students throughout the country through a fund granted by Booz Allen Hamilton and CSC Defense.
To be considered, you must have a major in one of the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering or mathematics). If you are not studying a STEM field, a closely related field may suffice, depending on your focus and your intent after college. You will have to be full-time enrolled in an accredited graduate program, and will need to have a GPA that is at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. If you are specifically applying for a scholarship to help you pay the cost of a certification program, you must be a professional age 40 or younger employed in a relevant field such as computer science, communications or electronics. Funds are available for a wide variety of certification programs, so have a look at the AFCEA website to find out what your options are. You must submit all of your application paperwork and supporting documents by May 15th in order to qualify for either type of scholarship award through the AFCEA.
