CMU’s Fellowships and Scholarships Office oversees many scholarships and fellowships that are of interest to College of Engineering students. Learn more at the Fellowships and Scholarships Office website.

There are a number of scholarship opportunities made available by outside providers for which engineering students may qualify. As the college becomes aware of these opportunities, they will be posted below. This is not an exhaustive list of all possible scholarships; it is a reference page for students to learn about opportunities. Not all scholarships posted will be current, but they will remain posted so students can learn more about them and plan to apply when the next award period is available. CMU does not manage these opportunities and does not make decisions on these awards.
