AES Scholarship Deadline is Approaching


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

Scholarship Criteria

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.

Deadline for entry: October 6, 2019
