The department has a limited number of scholarships available to award to our students. Awardees are selected from the sophomore, junior, and senior classes based on academic performance at LSU. The money is primarily provided by industries interested in attracting the attention of our best students.

It is the policy of the department not to grant scholarships to students who already hold a College of Engineering scholarship. Scholarships are awarded for a maximum of six semesters.

Award & Acknowledgement Questions

You will be notified by email if you are chosen to receive a scholarship from the College of Engineering or one of the departments. Be sure to check your junk mail folder often, as this email is sometimes misdirected there.

Yes. As a scholarship recipient, you are required to fill out a scholarship recipient survey and write a thank you note to the donor who funded your scholarship. A specific donor name will be provided to you in a separate email after you receive confirmation of your scholarship. If you do not write a thank you note and fill out the required scholarship recipient profile, it is highly likely that you will be ineligible to receive future scholarships, and the College of Engineering reserves the right to revoke your scholarship.

If you are selected for a scholarship, the award amount will be deposited into your bursar account by the end of the awarding period for that semester. These funds will be applied to any outstanding balance you may have and the remaining award amount will be sent to you either by check or direct deposit.

If you haven’t received your award amount by the end of the awarding period (Fall, Oct 31; Spring, March 31) contact
