Mechanical Engineering Scholarships

One of the positive aspects of a mechanical engineering major is that the degree covers a broad spectrum of careers.

With their generalized knowledge of technical fields, mechanical engineering majors may find a wide variety of careers available to them once they graduate, from military and other public sector jobs to work in the private sector for automotive or aviation companies.

Types of Scholarships for Mechanical Engineering Majors

Getting through to the point when all of those engineering careers open to you can be tough, though, if you have financial woes. Luckily, there are many mechanical engineering scholarships out there to help.

Most of the financial aid in the mechanical engineering field comes in the form of scholarships and grants. However, there are a handful of contests and graduate fellowships as well, if you know where to look.

Popular Mechanical Engineering Scholarships

Among the many non-school-specific scholarships are the Anne Maureen Whitney Barrow Memorial Scholarship, which awards up to $5,000 to female students in engineering, and the General Motors Engineering Scholarship, awarded to those with interest in automotive and electrical fields.

School-specific scholarships will often range higher in award amounts, such as the iSchool scholarship from Abilene Christian University, which awards up to $15,000 to those interested in computing and technology.

Those who wish to pursue a military engineering career might want to look into awards like the American Society of Naval Engineers Award, which grants up to $2,500 to prospective Navy engineers.

Applying for Mechanical Engineering Scholarships

Given the rigorous academics of engineering programs, most scholarships for mechanical engineers will require a GPA of 3.0 or higher as part of application criteria. Some scholarships will use GPA and class performance as the only metric, but others may require an exam or even an essay.
