The College of Engineering Dean's Office has a limited number of scholarship and fellowship awards available to students in the College of Engineering. 

Undergraduate scholarships

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
Mojtahedi Nexus Scholarship
The Ali Mojtahedi Humanities and Engineering Nexus Scholarship supports students pursuing academic studies in any field in the College of Engineering or the Allen School combined with studies in the arts, humanities, or social sciences within the College of Arts & Sciences. While selected students will typically have declared two or more majors, students who are early in their studies and who have not yet declared multiple majors are welcome to apply.
The application for 2021-2022 scholarships will open in Spring Quarter 2021.
