Scholarships, Awards & Financial Support

Engineering is at the centre of human progress. Engineers are focused on improving how we all live. We understand more is required of engineers today and our Department strives to provide our students with the extra edge required to become successful engineers.

More than $25 million in scholarships are awarded to new and continuing students at the University of Alberta.

Entrance Scholarships are available for students entering the program directly from high school, transferring from other post-secondary institutions, and entering from international destinations.

Continuing students are provided with two types of awards.

Some students are automatically nominated for some scholarships by the Faculty of Engineering. These awards are listed by Student Awards under the category Continuing Awards.

Other awards require students to formally apply for them. A partial list of these awards may be found under scholarships for current students; others may be listed in our recent monthly student newsletters.
