This fantastic committee is looking for more volunteers enthusiastic about reviewing scholarships for the next generation of unique and innovative engineers!

FES scholarships inspire and encourage the pursuit of an education focused on engineering and reward students for their hard work at school and their contributions to their communities. The Florida Engineering Society scholarships are generously funded by the Florida Engineering Foundation Inc. (FEF). Established in 1986, FEF is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit entity whose mission is to encourage and assist students in pursuing engineering careers and to educate the public about engineering. This year, FEF was pleased to fund $36,000 in Scholarships. The committee proudly announces the following students as recipients of scholarships to aid them in their pursuit of an engineering degree.
