Scholarship Opportunities

There are many opportunities in the Mechanical Engineering Department, College of Engineering and Information Technology, and UMBC for scholarship support of your education.  A few are highlighted here.


The Mechanical Department was awarded two S-STEM grants funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Its goal is to provide scholarships and educational opportunities to economically disadvantaged and academically talented undergraduate students in the Mechanical Engineering program at UMBC. It promotes full-time enrollment and elevates the scholastic achievements of students in Mechanical Engineering.  For more information, visit the S-STEM website.

The Center for Women in Technology (CWIT)

CWIT supports UMBC’s commitment to diversity at all levels and its efforts to create a campus community rich in intellectual, cultural, and ethnic diversity.  CWIT helps the University achieve its regional and national mission by identifying those areas in science, technology, and engineering where women are significantly underrepresented, attracting well-qualified female students to UMBC through special scholarship initiatives such as the CWIT Scholars Program, and working with departments and other campus partners to help make UMBC a welcoming place for women in engineering and information technology.  CWIT also supports the University in its efforts to attract private and public funding to achieve its mission.  For more information, please visit the CWIT website.
