Each year, the Somerset Steam and Gas Engine Association will award a college scholarship to local students pursuing higher education. Any local high school senior or recent graduate may apply for scholarship consideration. Applicants will be judged based on factors such as scholastic merit, community involvement, and career goals that promote agriculture or engineering related fields. Scholarships of up to $1000 may be awarded depending on the number of applications received, availability of scholarship funds, and the merits of character and achievement of the applicants.
Applicants must submit an application, in essay form, to: SS&GEA Scholarship Committee, P.O. Box 492, Somerset, Virginia, 22972, no later than March 31 of the current year for which the applicant wishes to be considered for the scholarship. The essay should include sufficient information about the applicant as to need and goal that would aid the Scholarship Committee in making its final decision.
