The Legacy Continues: 30+ Years of Vulcan Scholars

In 1984 Vulcan’s founder, Cater Lee, started a tradition that we are proud to say lives on today. Vulcan Scholarships, Inc. was founded in 1984 to provide financial aid to Foley and Robertsdale High School students who elected to pursue an engineering career. In 2001 Gulf Shores High School students became eligible for the scholarship awards. The scholarship awards seek to espouse Cater’s belief that… “No one makes it all alone, no one is successful without help from someone, somewhere along the line”. By providing financial support to engineering students it was his wish that during the course of their professional careers they might make a meaningful and lasting contribution to society.

Since 1985, the Foundation has awarded 90 scholarships with a total value in excess of $500,000. Our mission is to influence qualified Foley, Gulf Shores and Robertsdale High School students’ career paths by providing financial assistance in the pursuit of study in a qualified engineering curriculum.

This past week, the 2015 recipients were announced. We would like to congratulate these students, as they have shown excellence in their dedication to the pursuit of their academic aspirations.
