CBEE Scholarships

CBEE-specific graduate scholarship recipients are chosen from the active pool of current graduate students (no application required).

Fellowship and Scholarship Opportunities for Graduate Students


The School of CBEE application process is highly competitive and we normally make no more than 8 offers of support (in the form of Graduate Teaching Assistantships) per year. Applicants with a very strong record and particular aptitude for graduate research may be offered a term by term assistantship which provides a stipend and tuition remission. We can't guarantee that you will always be awarded funding. These are offered each April for the upcoming school year and are chosen from the ACCEPTED applicants. Graduate assistants may work up to 20 hours per week during the academic year. If you are not awarded funding you should be prepared to be a self-supporting student. Also, due to the limited number of assistantships available, MEng students are not funded in this manner. Applicants to the School of CBEE do not need to complete a separate application in order to be considered for assistantships.

University Graduate Laurels Block Grant Scholarship (UGLBG)

Availability of these funds varies from year to year.  Awards are determined based on academic merit and/or contribution to diversity in graduate education. This funding may be used for the tuition portion of your education only (not for a stipend or for additional student fees). Selected students may receive a tuition scholarship for up to three quarters in their first year of graduate school although lower funding amounts may also be awarded. Keep in mind that receipt of this scholarship will also affect your student loan eligibility. Students already receiving funding through a GTA, GRA or other School Fellowship are NOT eligible for the UGLBG Scholarship. Submit completed form to the School Manager in 103 Gleeson Hall by March 15. Application form here (pdf).
