GEES Scholarship Application

About Us

 

The Graduate Engineering Education Scholarship (GEES) program is a new initiative designed to create access to MS Degrees through Scholarships and to Create Bridge to Professional Career (BPC) through several three-semester thesis or project-based Master of Science degree programs in any of the engineering degree programs. The GEES program will provide partial scholarship to support eligible MS students with unmet financial needs, offer curriculum and co-curricular activities to enable the student to be successful in either the workforce or in their entrepreneurial pursuits.

 

GEES will provide partial scholarships up to $20,000 per scholar toward the completion of a MS degree program. The project will provide faculty-guided course selection to train engineering graduate workforce capable of performing as creative engineers. Other strategies include building capacity for research and innovation (CRI), mentoring students through faculty-structured apprenticeship, and providing graduate-student-centered community activities.

 

To be eligible, you must:

 

  • Be a student with unmet financial needs
  • Have an overall BS GPA of 3.0/4.0 or above in any STEM field
  • Be interested or enrolled in thesis or project based MS degree in any engineering field
  • Be US citizen or permanent resident
