The Scholarship Application period is currently Closed.

In addition to The University of Akron scholarships awarded by the Office of Student Financial Aid, the College of Engineering offers over 150 scholarships specifically for talented, dedicated engineering majors.  The College is thankful for the generosity of its UA alumni, friends and engineering corporations who have established these Named Scholarships.

Scholarships for the 2018-19 academic year have been awarded.  Applications for the coming 2019-20 year, starting with the Fall 2019 semester, will be accepted from October 1, 2018 until 11:59 pm on January 5, 2019.  

Engineering majors, including incoming freshmen, transfer students and current students, are welcome to apply every year.  We do have more dollars available for our upperclassmen. If a student is chosen for an award by the Engineering Scholarship Selection committee, they will receive a congratulatory letter and an acceptance form in the mail in the Spring.

Note that prospective freshmen do not have to be accepted or committed to UA in order to apply.  We will confirm your attendance at UA before disbursing any funds.

If you have any questions about our College of Engineering or these scholarships, please contact our Director of Scholarships and Undergraduate Affairs, Renee Timberlake (
