Engineering scholarships at UNC Asheville are merit-based and are intended to recognize significant academic achievement by students actively following one of NC State’s engineering curricula.
These curricula include the joint Bachelor of Science in Engineering with a Concentration in Mechatronics and those of the 2+2 Transfer Program. Students are eligible for scholarships after being active in the program for one year.
Submit your scholarship application by April 1 to be considered for an award in the upcoming year.

To be eligible for an engineering scholarship, a student must be enrolled full time at UNC Asheville (at least 12 credits per semester) and must follow an approved NC State engineering curriculum (2+2 or Joint BS in E Mechatronics). Students are eligible for scholarships starting in their third semester on. Applications will be accepted as early as midway through the students’ second semester.
One general application allows a student to be considered for all appropriate engineering scholarships.
Continuing students may reapply for scholarships. Continuing students must earn a 3.0 GPA in the current semester and maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA to be eligible.
Academic integrity will be considered.
