Engineering scholarships

In addition to The University of Akron scholarships awarded by the Offices of Admissions and Student Financial Aid, the College of Engineering offers over 150 scholarships specifically for talented, dedicated engineering majors.  The College is thankful for the generosity of its UA alumni, friends and engineering corporations who have established these Named Scholarships.


Scholarships for the 2017-18 academic year have been awarded.  Applications for the coming 2018-19 year, starting with the Fall 2018 semester, will be accepted from October 1st, 2017 until 11:59 PM on January 5th, 2018.  The application can be found at  This one form will serve as the application for all 2018-19 Engineering scholarships.


Students will receive several reminder emails once the application is open.  Engineering majors, both incoming freshmen, transfer and current students, are welcome to apply every year as we have more dollars available for our upperclassmen. If a student is chosen for an award by the Engineering Scholarship Selection committee, they will receive a congratulatory letter and an acceptance form in the mail in the spring.


If you have any questions about our College of Engineering or these scholarships, please contact our Coordinator of Undergraduate Programs, Theresa Yogi (
