The 2016 Scholarship Application Period is Now Closed.


For more than 40 years, the Georgia Engineering Foundation has sponsored a program that awards college scholarships to worthy Georgia students who are preparing for a career in engineering or engineering technology. Since 1985, nearly 800 students have been awarded scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.
