» Engineering Scholarships

We are committed to providing a world-class engineering education to students from all economic backgrounds. To help you afford college, we offer a number of scholarships based on financial need and academic interests.

Scholarships for Incoming Students

All engineering awards for incoming students are integrated with your total financial aid package from Chapman. Awards range from $3,000 up to meeting full need (including tuition, room and board) for select recipients. For this reason, we encourage all interested students to apply.

Engineering scholarships for first-year students can be renewed for the four years you will be at Chapman. Scholarship renewal requirements will be listed in your award letter.

Fowler Engineering Scholarships

Fowler Engineering Scholarships are for students who are underrepresented in the engineering field, and will be awarded to those with demonstrated financial need. Please note that:

  • Fowler Engineer Scholarships are available for incoming first-year students.
  • In addition to awards that cover tuition and fees, limited funding may be available for room and board.
  • To demonstrate financial need, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • Limited funding is available for first-year Undocumented/AB540 and international students.

Industry Scholarships

Industry scholarships support students whose interests and academic work are in certain disciplines. This work can include an internship with one of our corporate partners and/or a Grand Challenges Initiative project that aligns with a partner’s mission. Some industries represented include:

  • Aerospace
  • Biomedical implants
  • Business/data analytics
  • Medical devices
  • Semiconductor manufacturing
  • Software development

Scholarship Application Process
