Undergraduate Electrical and Computer Engineering Scholarships

The OSU Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is privileged to have several endowed funds whose annual income provides full or partial scholarships to undergraduate students in the traditional electrical engineering option or the computer engineering option given by the department. Each of these endowed funds was established for this purpose by the generous contributions of alumni, faculty and friends of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Returning students who wish to apply for an undergraduate scholarship in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering can do so by completing the College of Engineering Scholarship Application. For complete details and application instructions, please visit the College of Engineering website

Application deadline is February 15 for scholarships granted in the following academic year. Students must reapply for these scholarships on an annual basis.
