Scholarships Awarded Through the University of Minnesota
Mechanical Engineering Department

The Mechanical Engineering Department has a variety of scholarships to offer through the department. These are largely independent of scholarships offered through the College of Science and Engineering or other outside sources. Students can apply for scholarships through the Mechanical Engineering Department even if they have already received scholarships from other sources.

The following are considered in choosing scholarship recipients:

Several scholarships are targeted at students with financial need. Therefore, students with need are encouraged to describe their situation in their personal statement.

A few scholarships are targeted at students with specific professional interests. Students with these interests are encouraged to point them out in their personal statement. Stating an interest in one of these scholarships will not reduce your chances to earn one of the more general scholarships. More information on the interest-specific scholarships can be found at the links below:
