Undergraduate Scholarships

(Open to all students admitted or in the process to be admitted in the SOE by the time of application for the scholarship)

Postmark Deadline: June 1

The School of Engineering (SOE) offers a variety of scholarships to undergraduate students enrolled in any of the SOE majors, including students admitted into the the pre-major engineering program. These scholarships usually supplement any other general scholarship received at the university level (e.g. Lottery, Regents, Presidential, Amigo, UNM Scholars, etc).

Each scholarship has specific eligibility requirements which vary according to the funding sources. Although there are some merit-based scholarships available, there is a large number of need-based scholarships available and therefore, we highly recommend all students to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You could submit a FAFSA online at: http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. UNM's federal aid school code is 002663.
