ASCE has several scholarships. How do I choose the one to apply for? You should review the rules for all Society Scholarships to determine the ones closest to your interest area. If, for example, you are interested in bridges, you should consider applying for the Eugene C. Figg, Jr. Civil Engineering Scholarship, provided you meet all other criteria. Water supply or environmental engineering students should consider applying for the John Lenard Civil Engineering Scholarship.
Can I apply for more than one scholarship? Yes. You may apply for as many scholarships as you wish, but you must meet the criteria for each scholarship you apply for. Each application must be submitted individually and each must be complete.
How much will a scholarship give me? The amount each scholarship provides varies from year to year, depending on the selection committee’s evaluation of applications and financial health of the fund endowment. Scholarships and fellowships generally offer $2,500 to $5,000 per recipient.
If I am awarded a scholarship, do I get half of the amount in the first semester and another half in the second semester? No, the full amount of the scholarship is paid out at one time.
Does the money come to me? If you receive a scholarship, the money is sent to your university to be applied against your tuition.
When are applications due? Complete applications are due to the Honors and Awards Program office no later than February 10 of the year of award. If February 10 falls on a weekend, the application due date is automatically moved to the next business day.
What are my chances of getting a scholarship? Not every applicant is rewarded with a scholarship or fellowship. Your GPA, financial need, and the seriousness you express for becoming a civil engineer are important factors in the selection process.
Assuming I am an ASCE Student Member in good standing, what are some common mistakes to avoid in my application? Your presentation of a thoughtful scholarship application will show the selection committee whether or not you are serious about seeking tuition assistance. Careless mistakes may cause the committee to pass on your selection:
When does ASCE announce scholarships and fellowships and how will I know when I’ve been selected? Generally, in May, the Society’s Executive Director sends award letters electronically. If you have been selected for a scholarship or fellowship, you will receive a letter in your email inbox. Your faculty advisor will also receive a copy of the letter. Unsuccessful candidates will receive a letter letting them know they were not selected.
What do I have to do after I’ve been notified of my selection? There are three items you will be required to provide. Your congratulatory letter will request:
If I received a scholarship one year, am I automatically considered for the next year? No. You must apply again, provided you are eligible under the rules of the individual scholarship.
