College of Engineering students receive numerous scholarships, including major ones from the U.S. Navy.

Engineering scholarships are awarded annually, and are based on academic merit and/or financial need. Financial need is determined by the University and requires the submission of a FAFSA annually.

The Dean’s office will determine if a student is eligible for a scholarship, as there is other criteria to consider, deemed by the donors.

  2. A brief statement telling us about yourself and explaining how a scholarship will benefit you personally.
  3. Your full name, current year at URI (freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior), and major.
