Engineering Fast-Forward scholarship open for summer courses

First-year students within the College of Engineering and Science may be eligible for a scholarship of up to $6,500 to take courses over the 2019 Summer Quarter. Students accepted to the Engineering Fast-Forward program will receive a scholarship, funded by the National Science Foundation, to enroll in summer-long courses: Engineering 220, Mathematics 243 and a selected professional development course.

In addition to the financial benefits of the scholarship, students enrolled in the program will visit local industrial partners, receive mentoring from faculty and access other professional development opportunities like resume writing, mock interviews and team building.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to provide this program to our rising sophomore engineering majors,” said Dr. Katie Evans, associate dean for strategic initiatives and project lead for the Engineering Fast-Forward program. “Tech students who have completed the program over the past two summers are realizing great accomplishments like engineering internships, summer research experiences at prestigious universities, and being on track for earning dual degrees or minors that otherwise might not have been possible in four years.”

The deadline to apply is Feb. 13.
