Mechanical Engineering


The School of Mechanical Engineering sponsors a broad array of need-based and merit-based scholarships. Eligible candidates (incoming sophomores through senior mechanical engineering students) are invited in mid-spring to submit applications for consideration. To qualify, students are required to have a scholastic index of 2.8 or better on a 4.0 scale. Awards range from $500 to $10,000 and total more than $1 million. This scholarship money is in addition to the University's Trustees and Presidential scholarships in Mechanical Engineering, which, when fully funded, will include more than 300 awards worth a total of more than $2 million.
