The Al-Ben Scholarship fund was established by the Los Angeles Council of Black Professional Engineers (LACBPE) in 1976 to provide awards and incentives to technically-inclined pre-college and undergraduate students enrolled in engineering, mathematical computer studies or scientific studies (chemistry, physics).

The objective of the program is to stimulate and support the student’s interest in these technical areas that traditionally have an under-representation of minority professionals. The program therefore seeks to encourage the student through scholarship awards and public recognition to maintain the high level of academic performance needed for successful careers in these fields.

The scholarship is open to students attending college in the United States, however, preference will be given to students that are Los Angeles area (Southern California) residents.

Two types of awards will be granted: High School Senior Awards, and College Undergraduate Awards for students with a science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) oriented major. The criteria for award in each category are described below. The anticipated value of each award is also listed below; however, these amounts and number of awards may vary at the discretion of the scholarship review committee based upon the number of scholarships awarded, and caliber of applications received.


High School Senior Awards: Estimated Value: $500.00 - $1,000.00

This scholarship will be granted based primarily upon the superlative scholastic achievements in the academic pursuits of engineering, math, computer studies or scientific studies education and upon exemplary actions in campus organizations, or community activities, while maintaining an excellent grade point average.

College Undergraduate Awards: Estimated Value: $750.00 - $1,500.00


This scholarship will be granted based primarily upon the superlative scholastic achievements in the academic pursuits of engineering, math, computer studies or scientific studies education and upon exemplary actions in campus organizations, or community activities, while maintaining an excellent grade point average.

In returning the completed application, the student will be considered for the award for which they are qualified. Each student will be eligible to receive only one award. All applicants will receive notification of the status of their application no later than June 16, 2020.
