The pinnacle event for the Georgia Engineering Foundation each year is our Scholarship Banquet. Held in November, the banquet provides an opportunity for Foundation Members, Scholarship Donors, Volunteers, friends and family to come together and recognize the achievements of the current class of scholarship winners. The banquet is free for the scholarship winners through the donations from banquet sponsors and the ticket sale contributions of other attendees. A guest speaker provides a brief message pertaining to topics of interest to the attendees and an award ceremony is conducted where scholarship certificates and associated monitory gifts are distributed. Students are encouraged to attend as a chance to meet their peers, the donors and members of the engineering community. Scholarship winners represent a wide range of academic programs, institutions and backgrounds. Scholarships are awarded to students ranging from Freshmen to Ph.D. candidates. The event is a celebration of the scholarship winners.

In addition to the general costs of hosting the event, GEF is committed to paying for the scholarship award winners’ attendance. To offset these costs, GEF solicits donations from individuals and organizations as “Banquet Sponsors”. We have established three levels of banquet sponsorship:
