The 2017 Scholarship Application Period has not opened. GEF is undertaking a rebuild of our website and online Application Process. We expect to re-open the website and begin taking applications for the 2017 scholarships no later than June 15, 2017. Please check website for status or call 404-537-1415 if you have any questions.


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. In 2016, 45 awards were made and a total of $81,000 was given to students pursuing a field in either engineering or engineering technology.

All scholarships are competitively awarded based on the student’s demonstrated competence in academics, interest in developing a career in engineering, financial need, and school and community involvement. Look for the next application period to open again in Summer 2017.

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible, a student must be interested in a career in engineering or engineering technology and:

1) A U. S. Citizen (does not apply to IEEE Scholarships);
