Scholarships and Financial Aid
Many opportunities are available to assist with the financing of a students’ college education. The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid at Virginia Tech maintains many resources to assist students and families in locating scholarships.
Civil Engineering Scholarships
The Civil Engineering Department participates in the College of Engineering’s merit-based scholarship process. All Departmental funding is awarded through the COE’s application process. Therefore, if a student is interested in applying for scholarships from the CEE Department directly, they must complete the COE scholarship process. Information can be found in the navigational links at the top of the page under COE Scholarship Opportunities.
It is strongly recommended that all current students submit this application, as the Civil Engineering Department distributes nearly $180,000 to undergraduate students in merit-based scholarship each year. Applications are available each year beginning in February. Current students are notified of this date and deadline via e-mail.
College of Engineering Scholarships
Applications are available for merit scholarships in the College of Engineering in February of each year.

Other Scholarship Sources
Companies and organizations often notify the Via Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of available scholarships for students pursuing a civil engineering degree. Information about these scholarships is disseminated to currently enrolled students via an undergraduate communication forum and posted on the undergraduate scholarship webpage for students to review.
