25th Scholarship Awards Program
This program provides scholarships to deserving North Alabama students in 5 areas. The Creative Minds Poster Contest recognizes 5th grade students who exhibit excellent displays in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM); The U. S. Space Academy Scholarship will send deserving middle school students to Space Camp for a week; The Timothy Briggs Leadership Scholarship rewards high school seniors interested in pursuing a STEM discipline; Essay Contest Awards are offered to high school students; and a Summer Engineering Camp Scholarship is presented to middle school students showing STEM interests.
Space Camp (6th to 8th grade) - The scholarship covers a weeklong program at the US Space Camp/Academy, including meals, educational materials, housing accommodations, and paraphernalia. The US Space Camp/Academy is an educational program that couples classroom instruction with hands on activities. Trainees learn about space flight and the space program from attending lectures and seminars, and put this information to practical use with simulators and tours
Briggs Scholarship (12th grade) - This chapter of NSBE Professionals encourages and advises youth in their pursuit of careers in engineering and the applied sciences by offering programs and services that include Scholarship Endowment, Tutorial Programs, Advanced Study Skills and much more. In keeping with its objectives, the NAL NSBE Professionals is sponsoring the Timothy Briggs Scholarship.
High School STEM Essay (9th to 12th grade) - This contest is a time-honored tradition of the NAL NSBE Professionals, which gives us an opportunity to advance the importance of the written word. The contest has dual purposes – to motivate today’s youth towards journalistic development and to increase awareness and the value of technology-related service to your community.
Creative Minds Poster Contest (5th grade) - NAL NSBE Professionals is providing the opportunity for young students to participate in a poster contest where the winners will receive a “Summer Science Fun Pack”. The fun pack will include tickets to the US Space and Rocket Center, attendance to NSBE’s Summer Engineering Robotics Camp in June 2018, and other prizes.
