Additional Scholarship Opportunities for Continuing Students

This list of scholarships is by no means comprehensive. Every student should be diligent in finding awards for which they may be competitive. To find more scholarships outside of Penn State, searching for scholarships using any key words along with phrase “engineering scholarships” is a good way to start. Most scholarship programs will have pages that describe the specific deadlines and eligibility requirements for their awards.
