Engineering Scholarships

Engineering is a popular, diverse and valuable college major. Unfortunately, those pursuing an engineering degree frequently need financial assistance to pay for school. And because engineering studies are often time consuming, scholarships that can help students pay for additional semesters are of particular importance since working while in school is usually not an option. (A little good news: Engineering is usually one of the highest paid college majors.)

Luckily, financial aid is readily available to those who choose to major in one of the many engineering concentrations. Whether you’re looking for mechanical engineering scholarships, chemical engineering scholarships, civil engineering scholarships or awards based on other engineering genres, chances are they exist. There are also even more specific engineering scholarships for students who are minorities, women or returning students, just to name a few. Engineering students may also qualify for technology, math and science scholarships.

Take a look at the scholarships below for financial aid opportunities you may be eligible to receive. Additional information about engineering scholarships and grants may be found by conducting a free college scholarship search.
