Do you have the brains and passion to become an engineer but worry about the cost of the education? You're not alone. Fortunately, you can offset some of these costs by applying for scholarships that can help you pay for college.

The following list of scholarships will show you that you have nothing to fear. Students of all backgrounds will find that there's an engineering scholarship out there that can help make their education more affordable.

In this article, we'll cover many of the prominent engineering scholarships, as well as others that you might not have heard of before. Read on to see what engineering scholarships you might be eligible for!

 

A Brief Introduction to Engineering Scholarships

Engineering is one of the most popular majors in the United States. In fact, about 98,000 students earned a degree in an engineering field in 2015, and that number is only expected to grow.

It's not surprising that students are seeking out engineering degrees: not only can a degree in engineering lead you to a high-paying job after graduation, but it can also help place you and the country at the forefront of technological innovation. Because of this, there are many engineering scholarships available, sponsored both by private organizations and the national government.

The scholarships on this list are aimed at graduating high school seniors and college undergraduates. They are also primarily aimed at US citizens or permanent residents, and are open to almost all students studying engineering in accredited programs, with the main restrictions being location and grade level.

We've divided up these engineering scholarships into the following categories:

One quick note: there are many other engineering scholarships available that are specifically targeted at underrepresented groups in this field, such as women, minorities, and international students than the few that appear on this list.

We've tried to keep our list as general as possible, but if you're part of one of these groups, be sure to search for additional scholarships you might qualify for.

For the purposes of this article, we're focusing on a list of broader scholarships that are open to a larger proportion of students. As such, this list is not comprehensive. There are hundreds of engineering and STEM scholarships out there! If you still don't see one on this list that seems right for you, don't despair. Try searching online for what you're looking for—there's a good chance it's out there!

 

Tips for Using This List of the Best Engineering Scholarships

Scholarships are listed in alphabetical order. We've tried to include the pertinent details for each scholarship to make them more searchable. Simply use your keyboard's ctrl + f function, and then type in the search term you're looking for.

Let's say you're planning to major in electrical engineering and want to apply for scholarships in that particular field. If you search for "electrical" using ctrl + f, you'll be able to find what you are looking for much more quickly.

Also, we've selected a mix of scholarships for both high school seniors and current college students. If a scholarship is open to high school students, it'll be marked with an asterisk (*). That way you can tell if you meet the minimum eligibility criteria at a glance!
