Undergraduate or graduate students are eligible to apply if they are a family member (such as a grandchild, niece or nephew) of an active A.A.E., Executive Emeritus, or Honorary Life member of AAAE, who is also a member of their regional AAAE chapter
Students must be enrolled in full-time education programs. Scholarship recipients can be enrolled in any course of study.
The following selection criteria are used: academic records, participation in school and community activities, work experience, and a personal statement.
The number of awards varies. For 2018, each award will be $1,500.
The Endorsed Scholarship Program was established at the recommendation of the Accreditation Value Task Force in 2007 as a way to broaden the eligibility of the scholarship program to a wider range of family members (such as grandchildren, nieces and nephews), and also provide opportunities for active A.A.E.s who do not or will not have dependents to endorse for the A.A.E. Scholarship.
The Endorsed Scholarship Program is not intended to be used by active A.A.E.s with dependents that will apply for the A.A.E. Scholarship program in the future, or have already benefited from A.A.E. Scholarship Program awards. Active A.A.E.s may not utilize both the A.A.E. and Endorsed Scholarship Programs. A.A.E.s may endorse up to three students per year. Recipients may only receive an Endorsed Scholarship Program award for a maximum of four years (do not have to be consecutive).
