To get a civil engineering 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. And, what your goals are for your career. Why Consider a Civil Engineering Scholarship? A civil engineering scholarship can be useful if your goal is to earn a 4 year degree. According to the National Center for Education Statistics the cost of a civil engineering degree from a public college at $7,542. Or, $43,869 if you attend a private college.

Civil engineering is one of the most popular of the more than 40 varieties of engineering offered at the bachelor's level. In this field you learn about the science and math behind large-scale public and private construction. We're talking about bridges, dams, highways and water purification systems.
