Applications Sought for Ameren Scholarship Program

September 08, 2008

Students interested in pursuing an associate degree in engineering technology programs at STLCC-Florissant Valley are eligible to apply each semester for the Ameren Scholarship program in engineering technologies.
"This scholarship program is aimed at highly motivated and safety-conscious individuals who want to become technicians," said Ashok, Agrawal, dean of Mathematics, Science, Engineering and Technology at Florissant Valley. "While Ameren does not guarantee future employment through this program, recipients will receive consideration because this program will give them a strong grounding in such areas as system relay and substation work."

The scholarship program provides $1,000 per semester for tuition, books and other fees. Once awarded, the scholarship is renewable each semester, up to four semesters, provided that students continue to meet the established criteria. Up to 10 scholarships are available each year.

To be eligible, students must meet the following criteria:

  • complete a scholarship application
  • provide proof of U.S. citizenship or permanent residency card
  • provide high school transcript or proof of current enrollment at St. Louis Community College
  • have a minimum grade-point average of 2.5 in mathematics and science and a minimum ACT math and science score of 18
  • completed two years of high school math (Algebra I and higher)
  • proof of enrollment in an engineering technology (electronics- or mechanical-related) program at Florissant Valley
  • may have financial need as determined by the STLCC Financial Aid office and complete and submit an application to the Financial Aid office (students also may be Pell grant eligible)

Preference may be given to qualifying high school students who are participating in the St. Louis Regional Engineering Academy program and the Project Lead the Way curriculum.

Applicants must adhere to all scholarship requirements and meet the listed criteria for each scholarship. Failure to submit all required materials or to meet all requirements as outlined by the specific scholarship will make the application ineligible.
