SETLA Awards Scholarships to Local Students

The Scientists, Engineers and Technicians Leadership Association. SETLA is a 501-3C non profit corporation whose main purpose is to provide its members with leadership training opportunities through community involvement. SETLA also offers scholarships to high school graduates and is currently accepting grant applications.

To qualify for the scholarship, students must be high school graduates with a firm commitment to pursue an education in a science, engineering or technical field, or have completed at least two years of college and are going on to pursue a degree in a science, engineering or technical program. Students are evaluated based on application completeness, communication skills (writing), planned course of study, academic performance, community and extra curricular involvement, the applicant’s essay and if possible, an in-person interview, at the discretion of the Selection Committee.

SETLA is accepting scholarship applications for the 2008-2009 school year until March 30, 2009.
