What Mechanical Engineering Scholarships Can I Apply to?

Many mechanical engineering scholarships are for high school, undergraduate and graduate students. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) offers several scholarships. You must be a member of ASME to apply. Their scholarships range from $1,000 to $13,000 awards.

A mechanical engineer designs and builds tools, engines, thermal sensors and other machines. Their skills are useful in many career paths. For instance mechanical engineers can work in the auto industry, medicine, robotics, heating and cooling.

Besides your major, it is likely there will be other criteria to meet. Eligibility varies between each mechanical engineering scholarship. Applicants should also have a strong academic record and show financial need.

Most applicants must also show a plan to earn a degree at an ABET accredited college. You can expect to supply this info along with references and transcripts. There are many scholarships for STEM majors. Women and minority students can apply to specific scholarships.  

The Society of Women Engineers empowers women within the engineering industry. For example, Barbara W. and Thomas Benko Scholarship offers a $1,000 scholarship. One female engineering student will receive the award. Applicants must be enrolled at University of Illinois at Chicago.

Why Consider Applying for Scholarships?

A mechanical engineering scholarship may be useful if your goal is to earn a four year degree. Scholarships will help students cover the cost of college. Tuition, fees, supplies, and room and board can be paid for. Scholarships also do not need to be paid back like a loan. Overall scholarships can offset your future college debt.

According to Data USA, a degree in mechanical engineering costs an average of $7,486 per year. That’s if you pursue your degree in state and at a public school. Also, the cost is higher on average of $39,012, if you choose an out of state college.

Once you graduate, there are a range of possible career paths. There will be a 4% increase in mechanical engineering through 2028 in the United States. Mechanical engineering jobs require a bachelor’s degree and earn about $87,370 per year.
