RequirementsLike most academic-based awards, engineering scholarships are competitive.
- For entering freshmen students, the School of Engineering Scholarship Committee will review the entire engineering scholarship packet and not just focus solely on an ACT or SAT composite score.
- For transfer students, the college or university transcript will play a significant role.
* An engineering scholarship can be in addition to other University awards based on a student's eligibility.
Items that do receive particular attention are:
- ACT and/or SAT composite and sub-scores, grade point average (GPA), and class standing
- Sequence and success in mathematics and the physical sciences, and advanced placement (AP)/honors courses taken
- Extracurricular activities and honors within high school and the community
- Application narrative
- Letters of recommendation are encouraged, but are not required.
* Note for University level awards. It is always advisable for entering freshmen to retake the ACT or SAT as higher scores may increase the monetary amounts for which they will be eligible. With preparation, students are usually very successful in increasing their individual scores. There is a deadline for ACT and SAT test scores to be submitted to the University for award consideration.
University / College Transfer Students
- Transcript Grade Point Average: cumulative and sub-GPA within mathematics and the physical sciences
- Extracurricular activities and honors in the university/college and the community
- Application narrative. Letters of recommendation are encouraged, but are not required. Previous ACT or SAT testing may be considered to enhance a student's competitiveness.
The Application Process
- The University of Mississippi scholarship application will allow entering freshmen / transfer students to automatically compete for ALL available awards.
