Alamo AFCEA Scholarships & Grants
The primary mission of the Alamo AFCEA Education Foundation is to promote education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) through scholarships and grants. Our main purpose is to help alleviate the shortage of people in this country who
possess technical degrees – a priceless national human resource. Each year, the Education Foundation allocates a significant portion of our budget to fund these educational programs:
Our goal is to develop a STEM pipeline and grow a strong base in our Teachers, Schools, and Students in San Antonio and the surrounding area. Each year the foundation chooses a theme to emphasize a specific objective that drives the overall goals of our scholarships and grants donation program. Past themes have included Title I Schools, Rising Stars, STEM Teachers, Girls in STEM, and the Military in STEM. These themes help us to highlight areas of greatest need or accomplishment, but our ultimate goal to support and promote those who have excelled and enhanced the future of technology.

The SA BEST (Boosting Engineering, Science, and Technology) competition is a contest held annually to inspire and interest high school students in the fields of science and engineering. With guidance from adult mentors, local
teams of students design and build a remote-controlled machine to accomplish a specific task. The students receive a box of raw materials from which to build the machine and are given 6 weeks to design and construct it.
The task of the robot is secret until Kick-off Day, when all the teams receive final instructions. On Competition Day, all schools will compete head-on with each other in a thrilling science-fair-turned-sports-event. Several
teams advance to the regional Texas BEST competition and compete with the BEST robots from other areas.
