How to Qualify for Civil Engineering Scholarships?

There are many civil engineering scholarships available from a wide range of providers. Colleges with engineering departments are a popular source. Private donors, businesses and professional agencies offer funding too.

Some civil engineering awards are only for members of specific groups. Like a certain engineering society, minority group or gender. For instance, there are scholarships that only women pursuing a degree in civil engineering can apply for.

In order to receive a scholarship, you will first need to find out if you qualify. For some, there are general criteria, and these may be open to students pursuing any STEM degree.

But other ones are set aside for students who are or plan to major in civil engineering or a related field. Like hydraulics, dam construction and welding.

Apart from your field of study, you may also need a mix of merit (GPA) and financial need (from the FAFSA). Many providers also want to see that the program you attend is ABET accredited. Some providers also want to know what your education and career goals will be.

The National Action Council of Minority Engineers (NACME) has several civil engineering scholarships. The Chevron Scholarship awards one $5,000 scholarship. Eligible high school seniors must be studying any engineer field. To apply, eligible applicants must have a 3.0 GPA or higher. As well as submit an essay, transcript, application and personal statement.

Why Is it Important to Apply for a Scholarship for Civil Engineers?

A civil engineering scholarship could be useful if your goal is to earn a 4 year degree. A scholarship might be useful since you generally do not to repay it back. That’s better than taking out a student loan! You may use the money to pay for tuition, books, and other college expenses.

Once you graduate, there are many possible career paths to follow. Civil engineers tend to need a bachelor’s degree to enter the field, so this may be an option.
