Scholarships and Awards
MechSE scholarships are awarded to outstanding prospective students or to continuing students with exceptional academic records, and there is no application process. Prospective freshmen are typically notified of scholarship offers by March. MechSE does however, consider continuing students for monetary awards. Award applications are emailed to continuing students each year. We encourage all continuing students to apply.
