College of Engineering and Applied Science
Scholarships for High Achievers
The College of Engineering and Applied Science awards annual scholarships separately from those awarded by the UW Office of Admissions and Office of Student Financial Aid. Engineering scholarships are competitive and based on academic merit. Our scholarships are paid separately (in addition to) those awarded by the University. Neither the UW Office of Student Financial Aid nor the College of Engineering and Applied Science requires a separate application for most scholarships. Some university-level scholarships do require additional applications and/or may have alternate application deadlines. Click here
to find out more. All students admitted to the University of Wyoming by Dec. 1 are considered automatically for scholarships for the next academic year. Students admitted by Nov. 1 receive priority consideration.
The deadline for Spring 2016 study abroad scholarships from the College is Oct. 15, 2015
Engineering Undergraduate Research Scholars Program
As part of the University of Wyoming Tier-1 Initiative, the CEAS will recognize a limited number of top high school graduating seniors for their academic achievement as recipients of the highly competitive Undergraduate Engineering Scholars Program. We are seeking outstanding students interested in being mentored in research and scholarship. These students will be offered an opportunity to join active research teams conducting world-class research. Click here
