Scholarships And Funding

Every year, students in the Faculty of Engineering have access to more than $1.5 million in scholarships. Depending on where you are in your degree, you will either be eligible for Continuing Student Awards or Entrance Student Awards.

Continuing Undergraduate Student Awards
Continuing Student Awards are for students who have successfully completed at least one year in our program and are continuing into a further year of study in the Faculty of Engineering. There are hundreds of awards available for students continuing within the Faculty of Engineering, with values ranging up to $10,000. The majority of these awards are by nomination from the Faculty of Engineering and do not need an application. Potential nominees for these awards are automatically generated by an inter-departmental panel of faculty and staff from within the Faculty of Engineering.

The Office of the Registrar & Student awards also offers scholarships for continuing students which are open to all students on campus. Some of these awards are by nomination of the Faculty of Engineering while others require an application be filled out.

For a complete list of continuing awards, including those open to all students on campus, please visit the Office of the Registrar & Student Awards for a complete list of Continuing Undergraduate Awards.

Entrance Student Awards
Entrance Awards are for students who are entering the first year within the Faculty of Engineering from high school or are entering with less than 24 postsecondary transfer credits. Students must be new to the U of A to be eligible for these awards.

Visit the Office of the Registrar & Student Awards for a complete list of Entrance Awards.

External Awards & Bursaries by Application
In addition to the $1.5 million in scholarships available to students within the Faculty of Engineering, there are many large, externally adjudicate scholarships available to Engineering Students studying at the U of A. The award criteria and application process varies from award to award and in some cases can be quite extensive. These awards are then adjudicated by an awards committee that may be comprised of members of the Faculty of Engineering or by external parties as laid out in the award details. A complete list of Awards by Application can be found on our Awards by Application page.
