Doctoral Scholars Forgivable Loan Program


Scholarship Value: $15,000
Awards Available: 1

Program Outline
The purpose of the SAE Doctoral Scholars Program, now in its 16th year, is to provide funding to assist and encourage promising engineering graduate students to pursue careers in teaching at the college level. The program is designed to help alleviate the increasing shortage of engineering college faculty by attracting qualified citizens of North America (United States, Canada, and Mexico) who are interested in pursuing teaching careers, through the promise of financial assistance during their doctoral study program.

Financial Support
One or two new loans will be available each year. Loans are available in amounts up to $5,000 per year for three years, for a total of $15,000. The number of loans available will depend on the funding levels at the time of selection.

Eligibility & Selection
Eligible candidates will be citizens of North America (U.S., Canada, Mexico), and must hold an undergraduate degree from an engineering program at a school having the undergraduate program accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, the Canadian Accreditation Board, or its equivalent in Mexico. At the time of application, applicants must have been admitted to a doctoral program with the avowed purpose of teaching engineering at the college level upon graduation. Where one exists, applications must also be supported by the SAE Collegiate Chapter Faculty Advisor at the applicant's school.

Selection will be administered by the Scholarship Committee. The committee will review the completed application, transcripts, a minimum of four professional references, and appropriate supporting material. Selection of applicants will be based on scholastic achievement, desire to teach engineering upon graduation, interest in the mobility technology field, and support of the SAE Collegiate Chapter Faculty Advisor where one exists.
