AEEF, along with the generosity of individual and corporate donors, currently funds the AEEF Scholarship Program. AEEF administers scholarships on behalf of engineering societies and committees including the Alaska Society of Professional Engineers (ASPE), American Society of Civil Engineers, Mat-Su Branch, and Anchorage E-Week. The goal of AEEF is to consistently provide scholarships to support higher education in college engineering and math/sciences programs.

AEEF funds scholarships for high school seniors who wish to pursue a degree in engineering from an ABET accredited engineering program. Scholarships are funded by the local engineering societies and awarded statewide and at the regional level in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, and the Mat-Su Borough. Currently, AEEF awards approximately $30,000 annually statewide. The amount of individual awards varies from approximately $500 to over $4,000. By submitting one application, you will be considered for multiple scholarships:

Are you a university-level engineering student in your sophomore or junior year? Are you interested in gaining some exposure to design engineering for site development or facility construction? Would you like to receive a scholarship to help pay for your next year of school? If so, consider applying for the Design Alaska summer internship program, designed specifically for Doyon Foundation students!

One internship is available, and the position is open to university-level engineering students who have completed their sophomore or junior year by summer 2014. The application deadline is Thursday, May 1 at 5 p.m. For more information on how to apply for this internship, contact Maurine Isaacson, Doyon Foundation scholarship program manager, at 907.459.2049 or

The selected intern will start their internship upon completion of their spring semester. The intern will be given the choice of concentrating on a single engineering discipline, such as civil, structural, mechanical or electrical engineering, or being exposed to a combination of disciplines.

Upon satisfactory completion of the summer internship, Design Alaska will contribute $7,112 (the equivalent of two semesters of in-state tuition at the University of Alaska Fairbanks) to the Doyon Foundation towards the intern’s educational expenses for the 2014 – 2015 school year. However, the intern is not obligated to attend UAF, and can attend the university of his or her choice. Design Alaska will also offer the intern employment as an engineering intern during summer 2015.
