The Washington Society of Professional Engineers (WSPE) Educational Foundation offers $3,000 scholarships to students enrolled in Washington Community Colleges who transfer to ABET-accredited baccalaureate engineering programs offered by universities and colleges in Washington State.

There is a chance for those students who are still not admitted to a baccalaureate program to apply as well, but scholarship funds will be disbursed once the student accepts an offer of admission.

So as to be considered eligible for this award, the applicant must be a second-year community college student and have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5.

If you meet all the eligibility requirements, you are highly encouraged to submit the Engineering Scholarship Application.

Besides the Applicant’s Name, Email and Address which must be provided in the application form, you will be asked to speak about your work experience and list your part-time and summer employment as well as your membership in any engineering-related activities and your years of participation.

The applicant is required to submit the supporting documents which include:

  • two letters of recommendation from community college course instructors.
  • an unofficial transcript showing all community college courses completed.
  • a short essay entitled “My Interest in Engineering” about 400 words long, in which he/she will discuss his/her interest in engineering, a specific field of engineering that he/she is pursuing, and the occupation that he/she proposes to follow upon graduation.
