The Birmingham Chapter of the American Association of Blacks in Energy® (AABE) has begun its scholarship program for 2018. AABE is an organization of energy professionals dedicated to ensure the input of African Americans and other minorities into the discussion and development of energy policies, regulations, R&D technologies and environmental issues. One of the purposes of AABE is to encourage minority students to pursue careers in energy-related fields and to provide scholarships for such students.
The AABE Birmingham Scholarship Program consists of two (2) distinct scholarship opportunities:
1. The Premier Award of $5,000 is awarded to a high school senior with a GPA of B or better who demonstrates superior achievement and community involvement.
2. The Principal’s Choice Award of $750 is awarded to a striving C-student who exhibits potential for success in college. Applicants for this award must be recommended by their attending school’s principal or assistant principal in the form of a letter to be submitted to AABE.
AABE awards scholarships based on several traditional and non-traditional criteria. Attached you will find an application and guidelines for each scholarship award. Students applying for the Birmingham Chapter’s Premier Award may be selected to also compete as a candidate for the National Scholarship process; no further information needed. The winners of National awards will be contacted by the AABE National Office.
The completed application packages must be received at the address above no later than March 15, 2018. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
