2.9.4 Student Scholarship
Recognition for outstanding scholastic achievement consists of an annual scholarship(s) given to a deserving student(s) in the name of the Society. Applicant shall be the son or daughter of a Society member in good standing or a student member in good standing, have completed his or her college freshman year, be majoring in engineering, computer sciences, mathematics, physics or other technical discipline.
The Society Board of Directors will determine the winner of the scholarship. Son(s) or daughter(s) of the current Society Board of Directors will not be eligible to compete.
Scholastics, as opposed to need, shall be a primary consideration for the award. Scholarships are awarded for a period of one year, with previous winners and applicants eligible to reapply.
The scholarship winner(s), if any, will be announced at the Annual Business Meeting or Symposium.

The scholarship program is a strong and important part of our society's tradition. Our generous members managed to donate a large amount of money bringing the total contribution since 1984 to more than $ 50,000. (Note: Several European Chapter members have benefited from these scholarships.)
