This fund was established by the Steinmachers through a bequest in their will.
John and Jeanette Steinmacher each obtained a degree in civil engineering and were thereafter employed by the federal government on the Columbia Basin Project. They took great pride in the water distribution system they helped engineer. The Steinmachers were both strong proponents of post-secondary education and were keenly aware of the opportunities they were afforded as a result of their advanced education. They created this scholarship fund for the specific purpose of assisting graduates from Ephrata and Soap Lake High Schools in the pursuit of a college education, with a particular emphasis on those graduates who intend to pursue a degree in music, engineering, and mathematics or those graduates who intend to pursue a teaching degree in those subject areas.
- Applicant must be a current graduating senior of Ephrata High School or a college student who was also a previous recipient of this scholarship
- Applicant must be enrolled in any institution of higher learning (technical college, junior college, or four-year university)
- Priority will be given to applicants pursuing fields of study in music, engineering or mathematics or pursuing a degree in teaching one of those subjects. However, all students are encouraged to apply as there may be few applicants who fit the priority requirement.

- Successful applicants will be notified of awards at their high school awards ceremony or graduation. College students will be notified no later than June.
- Grants are made with the understanding that the applicant will attend school for the full term as a full-time student with a minimum of 12 credit hours.
