Awards and Incentive Program

2021 SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION INFORMATION

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 that enrolled in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) fields (i.e. mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry, environmental science, computer science, engineering, etc.).

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 to achieve a successful career within these fields.

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

Three (3) award types will be granted: High School Senior, College Undergraduate, and College Graduate Awards for students with a STEM-oriented major. The criteria for each award in a selected category and the value of each scholarship 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 - $2,000.00

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: $500.00 - $2,000.00


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 Graduate Awards: Estimated Value: $500.00 - $2,000.00
