College of Engineering and Applied Science

Undergraduate Engineering Scholars Program


As part of the University of Wyoming Tier-1 Initiative, the College of Engineering and Applied Science will recognize a limited number of top high school graduating seniors for their academic achievement as recipients of the highly competitive "College ofEngineering and Applied Science Undergraduate Excellence Scholarships (hence referred to as "The Scholarship") ."

We are seeking outstanding students interested in being mentored in research and scholarship. These Undergraduate Scholars will be offered an opportunity to join active research teams conducting world-class research. Recipients are evaluated on their academic excellence (high school GPA, test scores, and curriculum rigor). The Scholarship will provide $6,000 of annual funding to help cover the cost of tuition, room and board, and associated fees. The scholarship is merit based and renewable for an additional three years for a total scholarship of $24,000. Additional semesters of scholarship may be granted on a case-by-case basis (e.g. student participating in study abroad program). In the first two years of the program, a total of 48 scholarships will be awarded annually. The total number of scholarship awards will increase substantially in follow on years.

Awardees will be invited to participate in the "Engineering Scholars Program," in which they will be given V.I.P. treatment including opportunities for undergraduate research, one-on-one work with professors, industrial opportunities, etc.

Application Requirements and Deadlines

Consideration for the scholarship is given to those who have submitted a complete admissions application (application, application fee, official transcripts, and ACT/SAT test scores) which must be received by the UW Admissions Office on or before December 1. Awardees will be notified on or around March 1. In the 2014 inaugural year, student scholarship recipients will be identified in April 2014 and notified immediately on case-by-case basis.
