If your financial aid package shows that you have an unmet need of $9,000 per year, the Amazon Future Engineer Scholarship will give you $9,000. However, if your unmet need is more than $10,000, you will receive the maximum amount of $10,000 per year. In simple terms, we will cover your unmet financial need, up to a maximum of $10,000 annually.
