Funded through the SAE Foundation (saefoundation.org), these
scholarships encourage academic excellence and help students around
the world pursue their passion for engineering.
For the 2019-2020 academic school year, the 16 scholarships in the
2019-20 program provided more than $105,900 to 35 students.
"We are grateful for ongoing generous contributions from various
individuals, corporations, and universities that enable the annual
scholarships and support the development and dreams of future
engineers," said Lori Gatmaitan, SAE Foundation Director. "It is exciting
to award this group of deserving students from the undergraduate to
graduate levels on their accomplishments thus far and encourage them
to achieve their dreams of becoming engineers."

There are many markers of career and educational success. SAE Awards
are among them. Please consider applying for the following ones, which
apply to students.
Henry O. Fuchs Student Award
Established in 1991, this award recognizes a graduate or recently
graduated student (i.e., postdoctorate or new professor) that is working
in the field of fatigue research and applications. The purpose of this
award is to promote the education of engineering students in the area
of fatigue technology.
This award honors the memory of Professor Henry O. Fuchs. Professor
Fuchs participated in the SAE Fatigue Design & Evaluation Committee's
research projects, was a member of the faculty who founded the SAE
Fatigue Concepts in Design short course, published extensively in SAE
and elsewhere in the technical community, and actively participated in
the Surface Enhancement Division of the Committee.

William R. "Bill" Adam Formula SAE Vehicle Development Grant
This grant provides funding to a Formula SAE team to assist with the
development of their project. Applicants must be registered for the
competition at the time of application. Teams wishing to use these funds
for anything other than vehicle design will be eliminated.
Special attention will be given to those teams who were unable to
secure major sponsors for their team. The grant honors William R. "Bill"
Adam's contribution to Formula SAE and his lifelong dedication to
mentoring young engineers. The selected applicant will receive a $500
grant which must be used toward the development of the vehicle.
Visit sae.org/participate/awards/william-r-bill-adam-formula-saevehicle-development-grant for more information. The nomination
deadline is January 15, 2020.
Olivia Wanless of Kettering University is enjoying an SAE Long-Term
Member Sponsored Scholarship. She participated in each of the
first two years of the AutoDrive Challenge competition, which SAE
International and General Motors have partnered to headline-sponsor.
WISE: CONNECTING ENGINEERS &
SCIENTISTS WITH PUBLIC POLICY
Founded in 1980 through the collaborative efforts
of several professional engineering societies, the
Washington Internships for Students of Engineering
(WISE) program has become one of the premier
Washington internship programs.
Each summer, the WISE societies, including SAE
International, select outstanding 3rd or 4th year
engineering/ computer science students, or students in
engineering/computer science graduate programs, from
a nationwide pool of applicants. The students spend nine
weeks living in Washington, D.C., during which they learn
how government officials make decisions on complex
technological issues, and how engineers can contribute
to the legislative process and regulatory public policy
The WISE Internship is not a paid internship. Students
receive a stipend of $2,100.00 to assist with living and
travel expenses. Additionally, the WISE sponsoring
societies provide housing for the students, costs of which
typically run approximately $4,000 per student.
For more information, including requirements, visit
wise-intern.org/. The application and supporting
documentation are to be mailed or emailed to:
