Since departmental funding is limited for incoming students, the School of Engineering and Computer Science will advocate at the university level for incoming pre-engineering, computer science, and informatics majors who need additional scholarship money. Awards are not guaranteed and vary based on the application pool and number of scholarship dollars available for the incoming class. Students applying for additional university aid must have a FAFSA and CSS Profile on file. If that paperwork is not on file, please fill out the FAFSA and CSS Profile first and then apply via the link below. All financial aid related questions can be directed to Student Financial Services.

Applications for students enrolling Fall 2021 has now closed.


All classifications of students (Freshman-Seniors) are able to apply for departmental funds. These awards are both merit and need based. Applications open on February 3, 2021 and will close at 11:59pm CST on March 22, 2021. Students will be notified of their status in the process early May 2021.

The departmental scholarship application allows students to apply to the scholarships for which they are eligible using one web form.  View the complete list of available Engineering and Computer Science scholarships.
