Society of Flight Test Engineers Scholarship

The Society of Flight Test Engineers is a fraternity of engineers, whose principal professional interest is the flight testing of aircraft and missiles. The objective of the Society is the advancement of flight test engineering throughout the aircraft industry by providing technical and fraternal communication among individuals, both domestic and international, in the allied engineering fields of test operations, analysis, instrumentation, and data systems. The Society's Long Island chapter has established an endowment to provide undergraduate scholarship support to students enrolled in programs in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Stony Brook University. The scholarship amount will depend on the yield of the endowment. (In years past, the scholarship award was $600.)
