Scholarships


OPPORTUNITIES FOR CURRENT STUDENTS 

LSU’s College of Engineering offers more than 250 scholarships to its engineering, computer science, and construction management students. Scholarships for entering freshman are limited, but as you advance in your academic career, you become eligible for more scholarships based on your GPA, major, and extracurricular activities. 

  • Other resources for scholarships may be found through your major department, the LSU Office of Undergraduate Admissions and Student Aid, or other private sources.

Diversity scholarships

The College of Engineering seeks to promote and celebrate the diversity of our students, and we offer scholarships for underrepresented students. Students meeting the criteria will automatically be considered for these scholarships.

THE SCHOLARSHIP PROCESS 

At the beginning of the fall and spring semesters, students will receive an email asking that they update your scholarship application in their MyLSU account. Updating information is very easy. 

  • Log into your MyLSU account
  • Go to the Financial Services Section
  • Update your scholarship application

Then, the College and department scholarship committees review the information of all eligible students and award scholarships. If a student is chosen to receive a scholarship, they will be notified by email.

Our generous alumni and corporate partners provide the majority of scholarships offered by the LSU College of Engineering and its departments. For this reason, students are asked to provide a written thank you note and fill out a scholarship recipient questionnaire after they receive a scholarship. Any student who does not provide a thank you note or fill out a scholarship questionnaire may have their scholarship money withheld or become ineligible to receive future scholarships from the College of Engineering.
