Scholarship Opportunities

AES Engineering Scholarship

About the scholarship: AES Engineering is pleased to be able to continue offering scholarships to motivated students to help in the furthering of their education. 

Our belief is that achieving a high grade point average should not be the only criteria for determining who deserves to be helped. For that reason we are offering a scholarship that will be awarded on the basis of character, as determined by an evaluation of the essays that are submitted.

Scholarships are intended for our future leaders across a wide spectrum of fields of study. This award is available to high school seniors and all students attending a post secondary educational facility.

You are not required to be taking Engineering courses to be eligible.

Scholarship Amount: $500

Deadline to apply: Oct. 6, 2019

How to apply: 

Students must submit an essay of between 500 and 1000 words in answer to the following question:
