Scholarship List


*The college the student is planning to attend must have a Mechanical Engineering (ME) program accredited by the Accreditation Board on Engineering Technology (ABET). Questions about whether a given program has received this accreditation may be answered by the college or university, or by checking listings on the ABET website (www.abet.org) or, for non-listed programs, contacting ASME.
**Substantially equivalent means that at least 25% of your courses would be from the Mechanical Engineering Department.
