Providing opportunities for qualified students from underrepresented populations is central to the mission of the Department of Civil Engineering. Scholarships at the undergraduate and graduate (including PA) levels help our programs to remain competitive and accessible to highly qualified students of all backgrounds. This valuable support can recognize merit and can alleviate reliance on loans, making an engineering education possible for students regardless of their financial situation. Scholarships may be set up as endowments for use in perpetuity or awarded immediately for current assistance to students.
