Engineering for You (E4U) is a video competition open to individuals in middle school and up. We are offering a $25,000 grand prize and $5,000 People’s Choice award as well as category prizes to the most inspiring 1-2 minute videos focused on how engineering serves human welfare and the needs of society. Contestants can choose any time period between 1964 and 2064 for their video. The contest will run from Nov. 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014.

You are invited to join us in highlighting engineering achievements past, present, and future as well as make others aware of how engineering endeavors have benefited humankind. For teachers, these contests would make great class assignments or enhance another project or paper that students are already working on.
We hope that you or your students will participate in one or both of the contests and we also encourage you to share this announcement with your local communities of students, teachers and parents!
For any questions or additional information, please email EngineerGirl@nae.edu or E4Uvideocontest@nae.edu.

Exceptional student leaders are invited to apply for the 2014 GE-Reagan Foundation Scholarship Program. In honor of the legacy and character of President Ronald Reagan, this program annually rewards up to 20 college-bound students who demonstrate exemplary leadership, drive, integrity, and citizenship with $10,000 renewable scholarships (up to $40,000 per recipient).
Like President Reagan, candidates use the formative experiences of their youth to lead, serve, and pursue a life of progress, both individually and for their communities. Help put promising young leaders in the running for this prestigious award. Share this news with scholars who exemplify these characteristics inside and outside the classroom and encourage them to apply. You also may download a program flyer.
Applications for the GE-Reagan Foundation Scholarship Program will be accepted online until January 9, 2014. Additional information, eligibility requirements, and a link to the application are available online. You may also follow us on Facebook.
The USSTEM (Utah Sustainability, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Scholars program is a new, interdisciplinary opportunity for undergraduate students to become involved in science and engineering fields related to environmental issues. Scholars will have access to research, mentoring, cohort building, special symposia, and a terrific opportunity to be affiliated with the Honors College (including housing expenses!).
We're looking for academically talented, yet financially challenged students to fill these slots although the program is open to anyone. The priority application deadline is NOVEMBER 1st (highly recommended), but we will take applications until Feb.
