We are thrilled to share some exciting news with you—the release of the 2024 American Association of Blacks in Energy (AABE) Scholarship Handbook! At AABE, our commitment to fostering education and diversity in the energy sector remains unwavering, and we’re proud to offer scholarships to students who aspire to make a difference in business, physical sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
AABE National & Regional Scholarship Program: Empowering Dreams
Our mission at AABE is to directly influence the deliberations and developments of energy policies, regulations, emerging technologies, and environmental issues. As a vital part of this mission, we annually award seven scholarships, including six Regional scholarships at $3,000 each and one National scholarship at $5,000. The National scholarship is a reoccurring award for up to four years, provided the recipient maintains a 3.0 GPA and remains enrolled in an eligible major.
How to Apply: Your Path to Success
Ready to take the next step in your academic journey? The AABE National & Regional Scholarship Application for 2024 is now open! Interested students can apply by visiting our AABE Scholarship Application. This centralized platform streamlines the application process, ensuring that eligible candidates from across the nation have the opportunity to be considered for these prestigious scholarships.
Eligibility and Selection Criteria: Setting the Bar High
To be considered for an AABE scholarship, applicants must meet the following criteria:
- Minimum GPA of 3.0
- Unweighted academic average of B or better (3.0 on a 4.0 scale)
- Graduating high school senior intending to enroll in an accredited college or university next semester
- Pursuing a major in business, physical sciences, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM)

Application Process: Local Chapters Making a Difference
The AABE local chapters play a crucial role in the selection process. They review applications, select local scholarship winners, and forward the top-ranked candidates to the National Scholarship Committee for consideration of regional and national awards.
