Engineering Scholarships Awarded through the Dean's Office
When you apply for an undergraduate engineering scholarship, administrators in the Dean's Office and the departments evaluate scholarship applicants for potential matches to one or more scholarship programs.
The College of Engineering has a variety of scholarships and programs including: merit and need based awards from donor funds, e.g. the Crawford Family Endowed Scholarship; grants, e.g. S-STEM, CH2M Hill, and NACME; and programs, e.g. Emerging Leaders in Engineering.
Here are examples of two Dean's Office administered scholarships:
Emerging Leaders in Engineering
Emerging Leaders in Engineering Scholarships are awarded to students who are selected to participate in the Emerging Leaders in Engineering Program. The Program is designed to help undergraduate engineering students develop their leadership abilities through practical experience, personal reflection and assisting with planned College of Engineering activities.

National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME)
NACME is widely known as the nation's largest private source of scholarships for African American, American Indian and Latino women and men in engineering. Over 15 percent of all minority engineering graduates since 1974 have received scholarship support from NACME and are now leaders in government, industry, and academia.
To be eligible for this award, you must:
- Be either a US citizen or permanent resident.
- Have demonstrated financial need (as determined by the FAFSA report).
- Be enrolled as a pre-engineering or engineering student.
- Maintain a GPA of at least 2.8.
- Mary Gates Endowment for Students (a UW fund that provides a variety of scholarships for honors, research, leadership, and venture)
