In addition to the University’s scholarship package and financial aid options, the College of Engineering provides several merit- and need-based undergraduate scholarships to offset tuition, fees and other student expenses. Thanks largely to the support of alumni and donors, the College awarded over $1 million in scholarships in 2015 to more than 350 undergraduate and graduate students.
The UA Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid administers most College of Engineering scholarships through Scholarship Universe, a free searchable database, which -- based on characteristics such as gender, class standing and enrollment status -- matches student academic and professional interests with potential funding. Scholarships are awarded through federal and state agencies, private corporations, professional membership organizations, alumni and donors.
Thanks to the 2015-2016 S. Jack McDuff Scholarship, senior Scott Appleby has more time to devote to his mechanical engineering and applied mathematics degrees, professional internships, and work with community organizations focused on recycling and environmental protection: “I really do look up to Jack!”
Edward Mackay, engineering management Class of 2016, received a Kim and Corinne Fox Scholarship and a Conrad Fraps Memorial Scholarship: “Without them, college would be much more difficult. It is truly humbling how much people care. Their generosity reminds me that doing your best is always worth it.”
With a scholarship from the Arizona Science, Engineering and Mathematics Scholars program, Kendall Stokes, systems engineering Class of 2017, interned at the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute: “I have gained much more than I could have imagined through my involvement with the UA SEAMS program.”
Stantec awarded brothers Peter and Paul Mather, mining and engineering Class of 2016, a $10,000 renewable McIntosh Engineering Scholarship. Peter is pursuing business and data management: “I plan to work all over the world for a respected company and potentially work my way to the top. Dream big.”
Jeremy Gin, electrical and computer engineering Class of 2015, was on a winning Design Day team: “I am grateful for the Thomas Brown Foundation’s investment in my education and development. I have been able to devote myself to my studies and to how my engineering skills can be used to best serve humanity.”
