Scholarships and Awards
Civil and Environmental Engineering Department Scholarships, Fellowships and Awards
The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has many awards, fellowships and scholarships that are given each year. These scholarships have been established through the generous donations of alumni, private individuals, and industrial sources. One application is used for all awards and scholarships. Fellowships are awarded by the Associate Head for Graduate Affairs based on nominations made by the Graduate Committee, and are not open to applications.
The online application form for scholarships and awards may be obtained from the Academic Advisor in December. Applications can also be found on the undergraduate web blog. The deadline for submission of applications is at the beginning of the spring semester.
Financial aid for undergraduate students is available from many sources. Coordination of the allocation of these funds is, in general, the responsibility of the Office of Student Financial Aid (Student Services Arcade Building, 620 E. John, 333-0100). Students who wish to be considered for any of the college scholarships must file the usual application for financial aid through the Office of Student Financial Aid. The applicants need not stipulate specific scholarships in their applications.
