15 Scholarships for Engineering Students

Introduction

In 2017, 191,336 degrees were awarded to students majoring in engineering, including STEM majors.

According to Data USA, the median tuition costs for engineering majors at in-state public colleges is approximately $8,000, while the median tuition cost for these majors at out-of-state private colleges is approximately $42,000 per year.

Regardless of what type of institution you attend to earn your engineering degree, there is no doubt that earning an engineering degree is expensive.

Despite the fact that earning a degree in engineering is likely to lead you to a high-paying job down the line, it can often be difficult to see that far into the future when you are focused on figuring out exactly how you are going to fund your degree. 

So, if you are looking for scholarship opportunities to help fund your engineering degree, you have come to the right place! Below, we have highlighted some great scholarships that are currently being offered for engineering students of all disciplines.
