Scholarships & Assistantships

The College of Engineering competitively awards scholarships and stipend and tuition assistantships to select applicants each semester. To qualify, you must be a full-time, on-campus student. Part-time and online students are generally not eligible for funding opportunities.

The likelihood of receiving a scholarship or assistantship depends on the amount of funding available at the time of your application and how your credentials compare to others applying at the same time.

Assistantships are awarded directly to students from faculty members in the college.  If interested in an assistantship, please check the faculty web pages for the member with whom you would like to work based on your interest in their research and contact them directly by email to learn of assistantship opportunities.

If interested in a scholarship in the Sustainable Engineering program, contact William Lorenz, Director at william.lorenz@villanova.edu.
