Welcome to the Mechanical Engineering Undergraduate Scholarship Application!

Scholarship Application Opens on March 10, of the current year
Scholarship Application Closes on April 30, of the current year


The scholarships listed are representative of the funds available from which awards will be made. In most cases, students do not apply for individual scholarships but rather for support from one of the funds listed, through a common application. Scholarship offers will be made over the summer so be sure you have updated home and/or mailing addresses.

Once you begin the application, you will be able to save it and return to it during a future session. However, you must remember to SUBMIT the application when it is complete, and before the April 30 deadline.

As you enter your responses, please check your answers carefully. If you are asked a question that does not apply to you, you may enter N/A (Not Applicable).  You may return to your responses, but once you SUBMIT your application, you may not return to change any responses.

Eligibility: Any Mechanical Engineering Student is eligible to apply for ME Scholarships. Students who have not yet been accepted into the Mechanical Engineering Department and Transfer students are also eligible to apply, though your enrollment in Mechanical Engineering during the upcoming Fall semester will be verified before any award is made.

To apply, log in to MyUW ; click on the Student Services Tab at the top of the page; select Scholarships@UW-Madison; click Enter Scholarships@UW-Madison.
