Support Tomorrow’s Engineers

With your support, both MATHCOUNTS and scholarships will continue to lay the groundwork for up and coming engineers. Thanks to all who have contributed to the Pennsylvania Engineering Foundation

The Pennsylvania Engineering Foundation oversees Pennsylvania MATHCOUNTS and the Pennsylvania Engineering Foundation Scholarships. MATHCOUNTS and the PEF scholarships help nurture future engineers.


For more than 35 years the Pennsylvania Engineering Foundation has coordinated the state MATHCOUNTS competition.  Students from 6th, 7th, and 8th grade advance from regional competitions to the state level, competing for the chance to advance to the National MATHCOUNTS competition.


The Foundation has also granted thousands of dollars in much needed scholarship funding to engineering students. With your help, PEF can continue to award $2,000 scholarships annually. The next PEF scholarship may even support the engineer who will be groomed for your position and allow you to retire…
Please make a personal contribution today. With your support, PEF will continue to give academically gifted students important learning adventure, and hone their problem solving skills – critical assets for a successful engineer!

Thank you for your continued support of tomorrow’s engineers.
