Through the work of various members of the AABE National Scholarship Committee, Chapter Presidents, Regional Coordinators, local Scholarship Committees and many AABE volunteers nationwide, the AABE Scholarship Program is advertised and applications are solicited from eligible candidates nation-wide. AABE local chapters review the applications received and select local scholarship winners, from which the top ranked candidates are forwarded to the National Scholarship Committee for consideration of regional and national awards.
The standard application to be used for the 2013 process was reviewed and updated (see attached file).
Local Chapters need to update the standard application with the pertinent chapter specific information and update their local chapter web site accordingly.
AABE National Scholarship Eligibility and Criteria
To download an application, please visit the local chapter site closest to where the applicant resides. The applications can be found on the bottom of the chapter homepage in the "LATEST NEWS" section. For a complete list of chapters across the country, please select "CHAPTERS." Some states have more than one Chapter and some Chapters occupy more than one state. In certain cases, the applicant can qualify for both a local and/or national scholarship. Contact information, instructions, guidelines and eligibility criteria are provided in the application package.
Pertinent dates for the 2012 Program are as follows:
March 1, 2013 – Postmark deadline date for Scholarship applications to be returned to the local chapters.
March 22, 2013 – deadline date for each AABE Region to submit the top ranked candidates to the National Scholarship Committee for consideration of National Scholarship awards. The National Committee will select winners prior to the AABE conference to be held from April 17-20 and winners will be announced at the conference Scholarship Luncheon.
