WASATCH CHAPTER CHAPTER - Jan 24, 2013

Scholarships Awarded to Outstanding Students

January 24, 2013 was no ordinary day along the Wasatch Front in Utah. Although Utah is known for the “greatest snow on Earth,” new ice (and sheets of it) blanketed the Front. Traffic was snarled for most Utahans that day as a rare winter rain combined with the inversion causing a most icy commute for tens of thousands of travelers and making I-15 a slow-moving crawl from Nephi to Logan. But icy roads weren't the only things on the minds of a select few Utah universities that day. Scholars earned nearly $9,000 in scholarship funds from the AFCEA Educational Foundation and the chapter, and they were eagerly awaiting the scheduled presentations. On that day, Dr. Tim Martin, chapter president, and Ed Drollette, chapter vice president of programs and scholarships, braved the icy weather to drive almost 300 miles over an eight-hour period to place the scholarship checks in the hands of some bright students at the University of Utah, Brigham Young University, Utah Valley University and Utah State University. The AFCEA Intelligence Scholarship is awarded to students enrolled full time in degree-granting programs in fields directly related to the support of U.S. intelligence or homeland security enterprises and/or foreign languages. The award is co-sponsored by Battelle, Booz Allen Hamilton, Digital Realty, Lockheed Martin, Powertek, SANS, Terremark (a Verizon Company), AFCEA Intelligence and Cyber Committees, AFCEA International and the AFCEA Educational Foundation. The objective of the local chapter's ROTC Scholarship Program is to award scholarships to ROTC cadets or midshipmen who desire to major in AFCEA-defined technical disciplines and whose records and performance indicate intrinsic interest and strong potential for succeeding in the chosen technical discipline. The intent of the selection process is to award scholarships to those students whose scholarship, leadership positions, service, activities and awards demonstrate the core AFCEA disciplines throughout their entire ROTC experience.
