Scholarships

The Lyles School of Civil Engineering has many scholarships and awards available to students. There are many benefits to being awarded a Civil Engineering named scholarship, such as increased opportunity to network within the civil engineering community. Early each spring semester a single online application is made available for all students who will be enrolled as an undergraduate in the program the next academic term.

Electronic applications must be submitted in April each year.

Recipients are notified of their selection in late summer so that scholarship dollars can be applied to fees for the following fall and spring terms. Because most scholarships list specific requirements, completion of the online application provides further information to assist in evaluating candidates. Therefore, students are urged to make use of this application to enhance consideration for scholarships awarded through the School.

The School also receives information throughout the year on scholarships provided to civil engineering students by outside organizations. A list of these opportunities is maintained under the Scholarships link on the CE website. Various professional civil engineering organizations, companies and affiliations offer these scholarships. A separate application is required for each scholarship. The process and deadline to apply varies by individual scholarship. Applications can be obtained via the sponsoring organization website unless otherwise indicated.
