Application Instructions

The College of Engineering has two types of scholarships from an application perspective;  auto-match scholarships and apply-to scholarships.  Auto-match scholarships only require you to complete the General Application and the College of Engineering Application as described below for possible consideration.  Apply-to scholarships require additional information from you, typically an essay or a series of questions for possible consideration.

Steps to apply:

  • Log into the scholarship system https://utah.academicworks.com/ using your uNID and CIS credentials.
  • Complete the General Application and make sure to check College of Engineering on the question shown below to ensure you receive the College of Engineering Conditional Application:
  • Complete the College of Engineering Application.
  • Review the list of recommended scholarships. Apply for scholarships for which you meet the requirements.  The scholarship system will recommend scholarships that it thinks you qualify.  Since this system is shared by the entire University, some scholarships may show up that don't really apply to you.  The best thing to do to filter this list would be to search Engineering in the search bar.  Please note, this is not an exhaustive list of College of Engineering scholarships, just a list that the system thinks you meet the basic requirements to apply.
