Scholarships for Current Engineering Students


Scholarships for current engineering students are awarded annually by the Clark School and the academic departments. Students must complete the online scholarship application each year to be considered for Clark School Scholarships. Scholarship applications are reviewed by the student's major department and at the college level (if the student's major is undecided) after spring grades are posted. Applicants will be considered for every scholarship administered by the Clark School for which they are eligible. Only students receiving a scholarship will be notified.  Please be aware that the available scholarship funding for the Clark School changes each year.  Students receiving scholarship funding one year may not receive the same or any funding in future years.

We strongly encourage students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as many engineering scholarships have a financial need requirement.

The 2019-2020 scholarship application is available online by clicking here.  For best consideration, please submit your application by the priority deadline of Friday, May 31, 2019.
