We want to support the next generation of engineers and land surveyors! The school year’s not over yet, but students are already thinking ahead to next semester’s tuition fees. Fortunately, many organizations offer scholarships for students who are enrolled or planning to enroll in engineering or land surveying programs.  

We’ve compiled scholarship information for students who meet these criteria, but this list is nowhere near complete. There are thousands of scholarships out there. Hopefully, this resource will serve as a jumping-off point as you continue your educational journey.  

(Also: If you’re already accepted or enrolled at a college or university, your school or department might offer their own scholarships to current and incoming students. Don’t forget to check!)
