Momentum - September 2020 - 17
FOR THE 2020-2021 ACADEMIC YEAR, there are 49
undergraduate and graduate engineering student
recipients of SAE International's Annual Engineering
Student Scholarships. Supported by the SAE Foundation,
the scholarships encourage academic excellence and
help students pursue their passion for engineering.
"With the help from our generous donors-individuals,
corporations, and universities-we are able to offer
scholarships to students across the country," said Lori
Gatmaitan, SAE Foundation Director. "We are proud to
support the future engineering workforce by awarding
these scholarships to help undergraduate and graduate
students achieve their dreams."
A total of $252,500 will be distributed among the 49
The mission of the SAE Foundation is to encourage
and increase student achievement and participation
in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)
to build a STEM-fluent workforce. In addition to
scholarships, funds raised by the SAE Foundation
support SAE's award-winning A World In Motion (AWIM)
program, Collegiate Design Series (CDS), and awards.
These STEM education programs enable students to
develop the 21st century skills needed to succeed in
real-world work environments and connect classroom
learning with real-life application.
SAE's STEM programs have reached more than 6
million students worldwide and engaged more than
30,000 STEM industry professionals as volunteers.
SAE is the only organization with a comprehensive
continuum of "Pre-K through College" STEM education
Applications for the 2021-22 academic school year
student scholarships will be accepted from January 4
through March 15, 2021. For more information and to

Like most SAE scholarship recipients,
Archika Dogra of Bellevue, Wash., is a real
go-getter with an entrepreneurial spirit.
After "experiencing isolation and
discouragement" in her first high school
engineering class, she co-founded
EduSTEM, a community education
initiative. "I wanted to create learning
environments embracing diversity and
empathy through STEM education,

starting off at my local community center with 5 kids," she said. "Today, EduSTEM
has expanded to 6 countries and 19 locations, educating 2,000+ minority youths
across 190 free programs, camps, and events.
Also, she was founder and president of her high school's Technology Student
Association-the district's first such chapter. She led more 90+ students to State
and Nationals over three years, with her chapter winning 11 National recognitions.
"The number one factor that motivates me to work on a project, build a
product, or contribute to an organization's work," she told MOMENTUM, "stems
from an all-encompassing question: How can what I do positively impact others?
Throughout high school, I combined my love for community service, technology,
and social impact in unique and fulfilling ways. I was privileged with the
opportunities to push myself at the intersections of humanity and technology."
