SAME has a number of programs that help support future engineers, young members, NCOs and wounded warriors. These programs range from oversight of educational camps for high school students, to stipends to attend meetings for young members and NCOs, to contributions in support of our wounded warriors. These programs are divided into two funding categories: Education & Mentoring and Quality of Life.
Education & Mentoring (E&M) FUND. Hosted by SAME HQ, the E&M Fund provides support to SAME College Students, Young Members, Noncommissioned Officers and Small Business Members through grants for continuing education and professional development as well as to support the SAME Engineering and Construction Camps. The programs are reviewed and approved each year by the SAME Executive Committee. Donations may be made at the Sponsor or Annual Donor level.
Quality of Life Plus (QL+). SAME continues to collect funds for QL+ projects in support of military and first responder amputees by developing prosthetic devices at its laboratory at California Polytechnic University (Cal Poly) at San Luis Obispo, Calif. The projects are accomplished by teams of engineering students. Details on QL+ projects may be found at www.same.org/woundedwarrior.
