These annual scholarships are in honor of Marine Sergeant Justin Noyes, an American Hero, who fought and died while serving our country in Fallujah, Iraq. Named for a remarkable young man who was fiercely dedicated to the service of our Nation, the scholarships recognize students whose accomplishments; associated with scholastic abilities, leadership and love of country; are honored by SAME and mirror the achievements of Sergeant Noyes.
The Tulsa Post of the SAME wants to award these scholarships to students who have the desire and ability to become excellent engineers, physical scientists, or biological scientists. Our eligibility requirements; therefore, do not limit the scholarship opportunity to those students with the best grades or the highest ACT scores. We are depending on guidance counselors, teachers, JROTC leaders, and Tulsa Post SAME members to identify students who are most deserving and might not otherwise qualify for scholarships based primarily on academic achievement.
Those receiving scholarships for 2019 include:
