Five GS Students Win Georgia Engineering Foundation Scholarships
For over 50 years, the Georgia Engineering Foundation has sponsored a program that awards college scholarships to worthy Georgia students who are preparing for a career in engineering or engineering technology. Since 1985, over 1000 students have been awarded scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.
All scholarships are competitively awarded based on the student’s demonstrated competence in academics, interest in developing a career in engineering, financial need, and school and community involvement. Note that based on the direction of our scholarship donors, not all scholarships are awarded each academic year or the amount of the scholarship may be changed. Typically between 40 and 50 scholarships are awarded for a total value between $70,000 and $85,000.
This year, the GEF awarded 56 scholarships, with five going to Georgia Southern students: Benjamin Brazel (Electrical Engineering); Michael Jones (Manufacturing Engineering); Aidan Parsons, Caleb Williams, and Dylan Wyatt (Mechanical Engineering). The GEF Scholarships will host a virtual event on Thursday, March 2 via Microsoft Teams to honor the recipients.
