Educational Support Program

The Army Engineer Association is transitioning to an educational support program model for members of the Engineer Regiment.   While we have retained the HOBSON STEM Scholarship program, we have transitioned all the other scholarships into a general educational support program. Both are sponsored by Trimble, a leading provider of advanced positioning solutions and technology.

Starting this year thru the AEA educational support program, we will review applications that support college education that leads towards a degree (for example traditional AS, BA, BS, etc).  This program will also accept applications that are progress towards a certification or training in a technical skill or credentials.   Applications will be reviewed by AEA committee on an annual basis each year to decide on which applications will be supported with a $1000 award to be used only for tuition and/or book fees associated with courses taken at an accredited college, university, institution, or certification program.   Applications for this program must be received NLT 30 June each year  to Executive Director, AEA via mail or email.

The AEA Congressman David L. Hobson STEM Scholarship in the amount of $3,000 each is awarded to up to three individuals annually. The scholarship is sponsored by Trimble, a leading provider of advanced positioning solutions that maximize productivity and enhance profitability. The scholarship is to honor Mr. Hobson’s lifetime achievements in the advancement of military civil engineering, and to recognize Mr. Hobson for his commitment and dedication to improve the quality of life of our troops by improving facilities, housing, and opportunities for advanced education. This annual competition is open to qualified AEA members or family members of AEA members who are full-time undergraduate students pursuing a baccalaureate degree in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). The application deadline is 30 April each year.
