How to Apply

To be considered for a graduate fellowship in any of our engineering degree programs, apply online and indicate your fellowship interest within your online application. Acceptance into the fellowship program is a competitive process. An interview is required (in-person or Skype), as are demonstrated leadership, academic, and communication skills. In addition to the materials required for traditional graduate admittance, the fellowship application may require additional documents. 

Please note:

  • If you are offered and accept a fellowship position, you will not be eligible for any other discounts or scholarships, including a merit-based Dean scholarship or the Double Warrior alumni scholarship
  • When you apply for the fellowship, you are also automatically considered for the traditional degree program.
    If you are admitted into the traditional program but not offered a fellowship, you will automatically be considered for a Dean scholarship.
  • If you are originally awarded a scholarship and then are given a fellowship placement, you will no longer receive the merit scholarship. The fellowship will replace any other discounts.
