Army Engineer Memorial Awards

The Army Engineer Officers’ Wives’ (AEOWC) announces the availability of our Army Engineer Memorial Awards (AEMA) for graduating high school seniors. In 1973, the first awards were established as a living memorial to Army Engineer Officers who died in Vietnam. Now they are given annually to honor all Engineer Officers who have died in the line of duty. Students must attend an accredited college, university, technical school or vocational school. These awards are open to students in all fields of study. The number of awards varies per year based on the funds raised. Last year six awards were given.


The Geraldine K. Morris Award, a new AEMA scholarship, was established to honor the service and memory of Geraldine K. Morris - a former Army nurse and wife of the 44th Chief of Engineers, LTG (ret) John Morris. This award is available to a high school senior who intends to enroll in an accredited program leading to a nursing degree or certification and can be renewed for up to three years.

Applicants may apply for both awards, if qualified, but can only receive one of these scholarships. To qualify for either award, an applicant’s parent must be a U.S. Army Engineer Officer on active duty, is or was retired from or died while on active duty. For the Geraldine K. Morris Award, the parent could also be a GS-9 civilian or above employed at Headquarters, Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).

Enrolling at a Branch Campus vs. a Main Campus

July 1, 2015

by Ashley Grego

When most people hear Penn State, they think of the college town located in State College famous for Beaver Stadium and football. It's less likely that people think of the other Penn States - the branch campuses. Technically, they are the same university...but perception is different.
