Scholarships are an opportunity to support students through their education at UConn. Below you will find information on applying to scholarships through the School of Engineering, as well as a variety of other outside opportunities to receive financial support.

The School of Engineering takes a "one-to-many" approach to applying for a scholarship. Students fill out ONE detailed online application that supplies us with information used to match you to the many funds we have available to award to qualified undergraduate students.

To complete the application, students will use the software: CommunityForce.

  • You will only need to create one CommunityForce account here.
  • Each year you will be asked to update any information that has changed on your account.
  • In the application, you will supply general information, your resume, a well-written thank you note (in case you are selected to receive a scholarship), and a personal statement - focusing on anything that is not obvious in your resume or something you want to highlight about yourself that might be of interest to a donor.
