Moving Students Forward in the College of Engineering
The College of Engineering seeks scholarship support that will help the college educate engineers in a range of key fields that will address the world’s greatest challenges. Through the Moving Students Forward initiative, the college will raise undergraduate support across its eight departments, and support for students who are pursuing graduate degrees.
Undergraduate scholarships give the college a competitive edge to attract talented students and enable them to get an exceptional education – in whichever fields of engineering interest them – in the classroom and through hands-on learning participating in the college’s many clubs and organizations. Growing the graduate program is also a top priority for the college, and graduate support helps attract superior students who learn as they contribute through their work as teachers and researchers.
Support for the College of Engineering will play a key role in educating tomorrow’s leaders in engineering and raising the overall prestige and recognition of the college around the world.
