Scholarship Information


Current Student Scholarship Information


Sometimes, it helps to get support.

As a current engineering student on the City, East, and/or Scott campuses, you have various ways to apply for additional funding to offset the cost of attendance through the university, college, and your academic department. Merit and need-based scholarships through the college and academic departments are extremely competitive, so it's important that you:

  • Know and understand the deadlines and scholarship application materials required for each application you plan to submit;
  • Take the appropriate time to thoroughly fill out your scholarship application(s);
  • Fill out the FAFSA to be considered for the need-based scholarships;
  • Watch your email to receive information on department-based application instructions. 

In addition, as you start to apply for various current student scholarships at the university, it is also recommended that you keep your resume updated. Some scholarships will require you to submit a resume that outlines your curricular and co-curricular accomplishments. So, it's important you have your resume ready-to-go if you need to submit it for any reason.
